US President William Henry Harrison Signed Check, RARE!

Dated October 13th, 1828 this check was issued to William Henry Harrison as payment ($150) for his time as Senator. The issuer is the "Office of Discount and Deposit of the Bank of the United States" in Washington DC. It's extremely rare to find official US paychecks issued to Harrison. (Most checks with his signature are not payable to him and were signed as the Cashier of the Miami Exporting Company.)

Measures Appx 7"x2.75". In fine condition with a bold signature endorsement. 

Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.

Rarity:
Harrison's tragic death just 31 days into his Presidency is the shortest term in history. Anything signed by Harrison extremely desirable and valuable.(1773-1841)

Background:
Harrison served in the Indian Wars and was Governor of the Indiana Territory. In 1811 he defeated Tecumseh at Tippecanoe and, in the War of 1812, became a national hero by defeating the British at the Battle of the Thames. He then became a US Congressman, Senator and Minister to Columbia. He lost to Martin Van Buren in the 1836 Presidential election, but, in 1840, using the slogan "Tippecanoe and Tyler too", handily defeated Van Buren to become the second oldest President. During his inauguration on a cold March day, he wore no hat or gloves and delivered a one hundred minute speech. He caught pneumonia and died thirty-one days later.
