Description


Rare ink signature, “Free, D. Crockett,” on an off-white 3 x 1.25 slip clipped from a free frank. Attractively double-suede-matted and framed with images of Crockett and the Alamo, and a biographical plaque, to an overall size of 19.5 x 18. In fine condition, with an area of soiling to the upper right and an ink notation “(M. C. of Tennessee)” to the lower edge. Crockett would have had franking privileges while serving in Congress, dating this signature to one of his 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.
