    These eight covers were all discovered as a unit rubber banded together when my husband and I cleaned out an old van that was destined to be hauled to the scrapyard for recycling. I will be adding three more on another page. The total amount of covers signed like this are nine total.

    I have owned them for nearly 20 years. Can anyone assist me as to why they were signed in the postage area like this.? Do they have any value?

      It's called a "Free Frank"...people in places of power...congress...senate...even the president would sign their name in the right hand corner..and it wouldn't require any postage...

      Thanks BeatleJim55 for identifying what I have....Now that I know the name "Free Frank"...I'll be able to educate myself a little bit more when doing further research. Again I sincerely appreciate your help.

      In this era, you will find that most of these are stamps and not actual signatures.
