Civil War Congressman Pennsylvania Signed Free Frank Cover Letter Document Nice:
CIVIL WAR & RECONSTRUCTION REPUBLICAN U. S. CONGRESSMAN FROM PENNSYLVANIA!
Here's a FREE FRANK POSTAL HISTORY COVER ENVELOPE [a full envelope complete with backflap]. The Cover bears a Washington, D. C. "CONGRESS FREE" circular date stamp postmark. Nicely executed & addressed in O'Neill’s hand!
The document measures 6" x 3 1/4" and is in very good condition. APPEARS MUCH NICER THAN THE SCANNED IMAGE – THE PIECE IS CLEAN & CRISP. Note: The photo of O’Neill is not included with the Autograph.
