Original postal cover, 9" x 6 1/2", used by the office of Adolf Hitler to send a letter or document to Jakob Sprenger, "Gauleiter" of Hesse-Nassau, at an address in Frankfurt. The envelope is postmarked Jan. 2, 1938, with a printed return address at left identifying it as originating from the "Prasidialkanzlei" ("Presidential Chancellery") in Berlin. Furthermore, the envelope is closed on the verso, with a white-on-red embossed paper seal, bearing a national eagle surrounded by the legend "Der Fuhrer un Reichskanzler", the title commonly used by Hitler. The cover has been opened at top, and shows expected wear from use and age, with several tears at the top, sides, and adjacent to the seal, and the original contents are unfortunately not present, else very good.
