(See photos = 3 letters in 3 ovals.) It was acquired in an estate, and based on the accompanying documentation the person who signed the document was Sarah Willson (with 2 L's) who lived in Connecticut in the late 1600's. That's 337 years ago. In fact, this document was written 101 years before the Declaration Of Independence. Pretty cool!
