John Quincy Adams Would Approve: Flattening A Vellum Land deed

I recently had the pleasure of treating a vellum land deed signed by John Quincy Adams.  The deed was warped and cockled.  A wrinkled paper seal was attached with a rusty pin.  After humidifying, stretching and flattening the deed, I reattached the paper seal with archival adhesives.  All in all, once flattened, the vellum deed is in much better shape and ready for archival framing.
