History buffs are in for a treat, as Ardmore’s historical autograph and document dealer The Rabb Collection is selling ten letters written by Alexander Hamilton, one of the nation’s Founding Fathers, according to a staff report from 6abc.
Theses historic documents, which were previously owned by a family in New England, span Hamilton’s term as Treasury Secretary for George Washington. They cover a wide range of topics such as the establishment of the Treasury, the Bank of the United States, as well as the war in Europe in 1793.
Among the invaluable collection is a letter from 1789, ordering the first public government loan. There is also a document that sets out Hamilton and Washington’s rules on neutrality for the war underway in Europe.
Nathan Raab, President of the Raab Collection, said that it was both exciting and rare to uncover ten letters that were all written by Hamilton while he was serving as the Secretary of the Treasury. The fact that many are related to the founding of the country’s financial system is the icing on the cake.
The Rabb Collection is offering the letters individually, with prices ranging from $14,000 to $30,000.
