This is a promotion patent in fine condition for a young man by the name of von Münstermann. He was promoted from Premier Lieutenant (Oberleutnant) to Hauptmann. In his new role he was a Batterie Chef (Commander) in 1. Westfälisches Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr 7. The regiment was founded in 1816. It was garrisoned at Wesel-Düsseldorf and assigned to the VII. ArmeeKorps. The document measures 14 ½” x 9.” It was boldly signed in black ink by Kaiser Wilhelm I on 14 December 1875. Directly under Wilhelm I’s signature we see the House of Hohenzollern’s embossed royal seal. The document has been folded in half one way, and into thirds the other. The document is complete, but has some separation in one fold. This does not cause a problem in viewing any part of the document or the signature. It is a fine example of a document that is more than one-hundred-thirty-five years old.
