DS - Document Signed: papal breve on parchment with leaden bulla and yellow/white silk cords intact. Document is in near pristine condition.  It documents the appointment of Philippe Nkiere Keana, CICM to be coadjutor bishop of Bongo in North Ghana.  Bishop Keana retired in 2018. Acquired from the bishop.


In over 50 years, this is the first papal signed episcopal appointment we have offered. Uncommon and highly desirable.
