Lost in transit: A signed Abraham Lincoln document appointing Christian Frederick Moller assistant Danish Consul in 1864. The document was framed and matted with portraits.

See a rough image of the item here:

Island Movers in Hawaii packed the item in its own custom wooden crate. One of the owners of the document saw the item packed.  The crate was shipped from Hawaii on Oct. 10, 2014 (as part of a larger shipment of other household effects) to Northern California.  The crate with the Lincoln document has not arrived, though the balance of the shipment arrived safely on December 12, 2014.
