Issued Act of September 28, 1850 160 Acres Certificate

United States of America-Department of the Interior. Act of September 28, 1850. 160 Acres Bounty Land. Hessler X118. Issued. Fine to Very Fine.
A third impressive, fully issued certificate from this act from the same series. A listed series in Hessler, but note the protector style for acreage is like the 40 Acres. Like the 40 and 80 Acres previous, printed on bond paper by Toppan, Carpenter, Casilear & Co. 31.5cm by 22.5cm. Top center, a soldier returns to his wife and child. Obligation text across certificate. Left end with soldier, cannon and flag with Zachary Taylor in lower right corner. Right side, Farmer with then current President Millard Fillmore. Red protector 80/BOUNTY LAND/ACRES in bottom center. Under the bottom frameline is transfer text. Embossed seal. No.10745. Issued to a private in the Tennessee Militia from the War of 1812. The blank verso is nearly completely endorsed with three documentations from Alabama. Full bond, solid paper that is rather toned. Some endorsements bleed through to the face. A solid piece. Every one of these issued certificates is unique and contains stories of frontier life and a veteran's service.

From the John E. Herzog Collection.
