Frontiersman, politician and folk hero, he became famous for his shrewd and humorous speeches; he was killed at the Alamo. Ink signature, “David Crockett, MC,” on an off-white 2.75 x .75 slip clipped from a free frank, affixed to a slightly larger card. Beautifully triple-cloth-matted and framed with an illustration of Crockett to an overall size of 12.5 x 17.75. In fine condition, with the ‘Free’ stamp slightly affecting a portion of the signature. This is the only Crockett signature we have offered where he has added the “MC” to his name, designating himself as a member of Congress. This dates the signature to one of Crockett’s two terms as a Tennessee representative, which lasted from 1827–31 and 1833–35. An extremely desirable signature and must-have for any serious collection of Americana. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
