Description

Four-Star General George S. Patton, Jr. (d.1945) used swift, aggressive tactics to capture well over 1,000,000 enemy troops while battling through Europe and Africa during WWII. Known as “Old Blood and Guts”, the heroic Commander of the Third U.S. Army is infamous for his bold behavior and tough talk. Incredibly this hard-charging warrior took time out from kicking major butt in 1944-1945 to write gentle letters to his pen-pal. Unleash your aggressive side to capture this Patton signed free frank envelope (VG-EX). Addressed to “Miss Mary Jane Krieger, 204 Pine Street, Harrisburg, Pa., U.S.A.”, this beyond incredible correspondence is postmarked “5/5/45” below the typed notation “Free” at upper right. Measuring 9x4, this fascinating wartime relic features Patton’s autograph at top left next to the typed word “Censored:”, partially overlapping the printed return address which reads “Headquarters, Third United States Army, Office of the Commanding General, APO 403”. True to his nature, Patton has signed with triumphant (“9-10”) potency as “G.S. Patton, Jr.”. Full photo LOA from JSA.
