Andrew Jackson land grant

I know from prior posts that land grants signed after March 2, 1833 are secretarial. The question I have is are all land-grants signed before that date guaranteed to be signed by the president?

Can someone please give me their opinion of the Authenticity of this Dwight Eisenhower autograph. T

I don't have any Presidential autographs myself, but I do know of a sign copy of Teddy Roosevelt's biography. In the city's historical collection.


I finished a series of wooden fish that are painted like the 44 Presidents. See picture here I made ten copies of the print and sent one to President Obama. Did not hear anything yet.

Here's the George H. Bush autograph he gave me on his personal card, this was after he was out of office. It's in my album along with my photo of Clinton, I didn't get his this day, maybe a female would have, he only signed one thing for a small child...

The auction, held for the past 17 years, is a critical source of support for the not-for-profit Center’s international work advancing peace and health. Last year the highest bid item at the annual fundraiser was an original painting by President Carter, which sold for $100,000.

It is not necessary to post an online bid to enter the contest. One entry per person. President and Mrs. Carter participate each year in the four-day recreational retreat with friends and supporters held at Club Med in Port St. Lucie, culminating in an auction to benefit The Carter Center.

Comment by Robert E. Sigler on March 16, 2010 at 10:04am
my name is Robert E. Sigler and I have most of the Presidents that have been alive in my life time.

I have President Richard Nixon (1), Gerald Ford (1), Jimmy Carter (3), Ronald Reagan (1), George H. W. Bush (1), and George W. Bush (3).
Total I have ten U.S. President Autographs. My favorite one is from President Gerald Ford because he even took time to hand write me a letter.
