Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $3,781.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Outstanding personal check, 7.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Lee, "R. E. Lee, Capt. Engrs.," payable to Major R. Delafield for $2677.21, August 28, 1846. Endorsed on the reverse by Richard Delafield, who would later command defenses around New York harbor for the Union during the Civil War. In fine condition, with several light vertical folds. Both Lee and Delafield also served as superintendents of the United States Military Academy at West Point. A particularly handsome piece given its attractive vignette of George Washington, and a scarce format as one of just five Lee checks we have offered. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
