What Is Franking Privilege?

Answer

Franking privilege is a term used in England in order to allow those who held office in the House Of Commons to do their official business without paying postage. If you had an official seal of signature, you did not have to pay the postage required to delivery your official mail. Here in the United States it is a privilege only extended to a very few high ranking officials or in some historical cases, such as during war time, a soldier was permitted to have his mail delivered postage free.
