Original Land-Office Military Warrant 1784
Number 3559
For officers and soldiers of the Commonwealth of Virginia
Issued December 7, 1784
The Following is from the Kentucky State Military Registers & Land Records online site
“On July 20, 1784, the Land Office for the Virginia Military District was opened near Louisville. Colonel Richard Clough Anderson was the Principal Surveyor for veterans serving in the Virginia Continental Line, and Major William Croghan and General George Rogers Clark were appointed Principal Surveyors for veterans serving in the Virginia State Line (or Militia). Due to the size of the Military District, a number of deputies assisted the Principal Surveyors.”
 “The name on the face of a Revolutionary War warrant is the name of the Revolutionary War veteran. However, the law permitted persons to sell or trade their warrants and/or surveys. These transactions, known as "assignments," may be recorded on the back of the warrant or survey. The person to whom the land rights are conveyed is known as the "assignee." There may be multiple assignments on a single warrant or survey; the grant was issued to the final assignee. The process is much like endorsing a check to another individual. To fully understand the assignment process, you should examine all original documents and check original signatures against other signatures in family files.”
“Under the direction of the Virginia General Assembly, all patent files pertaining to Kentucky lands were sent to Frankfort shortly after Kentucky became a state.”  SO, it would seem while his warrant states land assigned in Virginia, it is probably in Kentucky as we know it today.
This is a land grant document with a signature of a John undecipherable, S. Off.
The reverse shows this land was assigned to a William Mundecipherable in1786 and again in July 3, 1794 to an undecipherable name.
 
Land Grant was in consideration of military service of Edward Lintner in the Virginia Continental Line.
