I will photograph the Grant DS and post it, when I return to IL in January.
I have seen Lincoln vignetted ships passes, but no other Grant passes other than my own.
yes, that would be a very interesting item to see. I also recall having seen one or two Lincoln signed ships passes but I do not recall ever having seen one signed by anyone later than Lincoln, including Andrew Johnson prior to Grant's terms or Hayes after Grant's terms making it very curious as to why one would have been signed by Grant, at a time in the 19th century when a Mediterranean pass would have seemed unnecessary--although why the need faded out is not really clear to me since recent events seem to suggest that the sorts of actions leading to the Treaty of Algiers in 1795, and the need for Stephen Decatur, may have subsided somewhat, but not entirely disappeared.
