1780-1797 Rare George Washington Handwritten Free Frank

SKU: EP1924CSM

Availability: In stock

$3,750.00

Quick Overview

Original handwriting of President George Washington, the 1st President of the United States. As we photographed this item we were struck by the overwhelming feeling of holding something in our hands that was once held by the first President of our great nation.

While the item does not contain the signature of the President, it is written in Washington's own hand, and includes the customary notation in the lower left hand corner "President U.S." as a free frank, which allows U.S. Presidents to mail letters at no charge. The envelope is addressed to Mr. Eber Tucker of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey. Would look remarkable framed.

Comes with our 100% guarantee of authenticity and a Certificate of Authenticity from Frank Garo, Forensic Handwriting Examiner.
