Standard state certificate, measuring 19.5 x 15, mounted in an attractive contemporary, glassed walnut frame with cardboard backing. Standard decoration with wingspread eagle & flags above and flanking vignette portraits of President Lincoln and Massachusetts Governor Willam Glaflin, with standard military vignettes & scrollwork along bottom edge. Signed by State Adjutant "Jno. A. Cunningham" and Governor Glaflin. The certificate's text and bordering artwork is browned from exposure to sun, while the area beyond remains white, obviously from being covered by a previous matting. The text is entirely legible, however, and in the piece is VG in all other respects. Good Massachusetts memento.
