Rare George Washington Autograph
Signed Revolutionary War Free Frank
PSA Graded 8
Signed as Commander in Chief of Continental Army
Free-Frank Envelope Sent to West Point Major General
Perhaps there is no more important figure in our Nation’s history than George Washington. Signed “G.o Washington” in his typical flamboyant style, this autograph is presented on a Revolutionary Free Frank. A Free Frank is a courtesy afforded to U.S. Presidents, and by simply signing their name on a piece of mail, the President is permitted free postage. Though it has been nearly 230 years since the original Commander-In-Chief put quill to paper, his remarkable signature has withstood the test of time and is perfectly legible.
This signed envelope was sent to Major General McDougall at West Point, circa 1780. McDougall took over the American stronghold after Benedict Arnold defected. One could only imagine the contents of the letter once contained in this folded parchment!
Comes with a Graded 8 Letter of Authenticity from PSA
