Forgery of Richard Henry Lee to Patrick Henry
Cosey, Joseph

– notorious early forger. A forged ALS of Richard Henry Lee to Patrick Henry on May 6, 1777. This is a particularly nice example that was pictured in Charles Hamilton's chapter on Cosey in his book Great Forgers and Famous Fakes. The works of some of the early forgers of historic American autographs have themselves become sought after by advanced collectors. [#3996]
