Engrossed Diploma from 1912
« on: April 17, 2024, 09:35:37 PM »
I was at a restaurant in Naples, Florida waiting for a table when this caught my eye in the lobby. A real live engrossed diploma from 1912 in the wild!!!

I was absolutely thrilled and glad the wait for our table turned into a fabulous 15 minutes. Wish I could have taken better pictures but it was very dark in there and people (including my family) were looking at me like I was nuts.  ;D
Warm Regards,

The certificate you found was far more ornate and older, but just so you know.. your not the only one who gets the looks  ;D

Looking at the signatures at the bottom, if these persons were not (as I suppose) trained penmen, one is led to believe that education back then included serious - and effective- penmanship training.
