Martin Luther King Jr 1963 Emancipation Proclamation stamps signed

27 Jan

Block of four five-cent stamps issued in 1963 to honor the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, 2.25 x 4, signed in blue ballpoint, “Best wishes, Martin Luther King.” Poor contrast of the signature against the background of the same color, otherwise fine condition. A fantastic association between important eras of progress in American civil rights, especially as King gave his iconic ‘I Have a Dream’ speech during the year these stamps were issued. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
