This is a very nice and rather unusual birth certificate. It measures about 13 inches by 17 inches and is in quite good condition. There is a piece of very old tape across the middle- I think this had been folded there and this was put on to reenforce this area. This again is in German script so that I cannot decipher all of the text. I can see that the date that the child was born was 1835-the 7th day of January. I cannot decipher the county or township. This was printed by Sam. Siegfried-Mill grove. The colors are nice- and pretty well painted. The print at the top is unusual as is the one at the borttom- this is not on all pieces. Again this is from a very old collection. Buyer pays shipping.
