Long story.....lol.....but, I ended up with this pretty cool old document from 1922, signed by one president and one future president!  Pretty sure it's real, came out of the estate of the guy on the form. 

Guess you never know until you have it checked out, but I thought it was worth taking the risk.  I just thought it was kind of cool and can keep it around.......if I end up making money off it later, all the better!

President Warren G. Harding, with the approval of congress, made Henry O'Malley of Washington, the Commissioner of Fish and Fisheries.  It has the presidential seal, it's signed by Warren G. Harding (I hope!) and Herbert Hoover, who was the Secretary of Commerce at the time, but went on to become President himself eventually. 

It's in an old, lacquered frame, and the document is in excellent condition.  I just think it's cool!

Congrats on the find. I love the local auction house. We actually have three. Two of them are pricey and are good to sell at but not so good to get bargains from. The other one has a lousy auctioneer and the prices usually are low. I picked up a Howard Miller mantel clock on Sunday for $35.00. It wasn't on the pre-posted list so had to take a chance on it as I had no research. Ends up that the retail price is over $1000.00.  Love finding deals like this.

Anyone ever thought about your own auction house?
