Bank of the Metropolis check, 5.75 x 2.5, filled out and signed by Jackson as president, "Andrew Jackson," payable to Richard Smith for $507.20, August 21, 1835. In fine condition, with two small mounting remnants on the back. In 1835, Jackson achieved two presidential firsts: he became the only president to completely pay off the national debt, and he survived the first assassination attempt on a sitting president. Jackson remains decidedly scarce in signed checks, presidential or otherwise.
