About this Item

Twins Esther and Pauline Friedman of Sioux City, Iowa, won a huge following as syndicated advice columnists. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Social Circle, Georgia, on 14 July 1973. Near fine. Single 8-cent "Rise of the Spirit of Independence" stamp at upper right; no decorative cachet at left and no recipient's name/address. The twins each sign large and bold in black fineline (Ann on top, Abby below) near the lower left. Not a First Day Cover, but the enterprising collector used this stamp because it depicts newspapers being pulled off a colonial hand-pull press and this cancellation as relevant to the coincidental nature of twin sisters in identical professions. Nice! Small portions of both original transmittal envelopes also present. Bookseller Inventory # 22848
