Kansas City, MO: February 7, 1929. Original. 8.5" x 13", 2 pp. typed Quit-Claim deed between future President Harry Truman as Special Agent and Commissioner of the County of Jackson, and George Levin. Other signature include those of Notary Public and Clerk of the County Court. His name "Harry S. Truman" is cited three times in the document. This is an uncommon, early signature of Truman before entering national politics. It would be another 6 years before he ran for Senate. Truman won the 1926 County election for Presiding Judge, but it was an administrative and not a judicial judgeship.
Three horizontal folds, center fold has been reinforced on both sides, small chip at one side of the fold, early separation at other two folds, aging on top half of back side. Two seals are impressed on the document, one for the County and the other a Notary. Good document fated to having been folded. Item #2580
