United States
Unauthorized Army Frank Issue

Army Frank Cinderellas
Unauthorized "Army Frank" Issues of 1898.

Major Brewster Cox Kenyon, paymaster of the United States Volunteers and an stamp collector is credited with responsibility for the production of three army frank stamps modeled on the 30 cent stamp of 1869. The stamps were repudiated by both the army and the post office. In 1903 there were reports of efforts to sell the stamps as remainders (Melville 192-193).
