I normally don't pick up material that isn't revenue related, but this had attractive enough aesthetics to trip my trigger, both the bicolor printing and the vignettes at left and right.

It's a certificate from 1858 for life membership in the Franklin County Agricultural Society.

That is a pretty one! And some of those vignettes look quite similar to engraved designs from the period. Here's an ABNC engraving of the Massachusetts state seal.
