These are the last three of the nine senator signed covers which I own in my collection of covers and stamps. I hope someone can enlightened me as to why the postage area was autographed in such a fashion as this. I am quite curious to know. Would also appreciate any infomation on possible value ...if any. Thanks.

    It was just another way of identifying that it was from the senator. It's a facsimile signature. I have a few from the 1970s.

    It's called a "Free Frank"...people in power...senator's...people in congress..etc.were allowed to send mail without a stamp...they would sign their name in the upper right hand corner or a stamp signature..and their mail would go through....
