Product Description

Autograph Free Frank, signed “Free A Lincoln MC” as Member of Congress.  [Washington, DC]:  Circa 1847-1849.  3-3/4 x 7/8 inches.

As a M.O.C., Lincoln had the franking privilege for official correspondence, and this was taken off the upper right-hand corner of an envelope.

Lincoln’s hand reflects his right-leaning signature of this period and clearly shows the common three-step nature of his signatures. Presidential free franks are more common; those from his one term in congress are scarcer.

A clear, finely-written signature.
