When the public lands were sold or transferred through executive order, "patents" were issued. Patents are deeds transferring land ownership from a sovereign (the U.S. Government) to a buyer. A patent is the first record in a chain of title for a parcel of land. Before March 2, 1833, all original patents were actually signed by the President of the United States; after that, designated officials signed in his behalf.

CASH ENTRY ACT The Act of April 24, 1820 set the minimum price for sale of public land at $1.25 an acre, and the minimum unit of sale at 80 acres. Public lands were initially offered on July 1, ,1920, by district land offices at pre-announced, scheduled public auctions. Then, if unsold, lands became available for purchase at the $1.25 minimum price on a first-come-first-served basis.
