Eisenhower, Dwight D.

Stamp

 

A new Eisenhower signature stamp has also been discovered.  It apparently was made from the original that Eisenhower wrote for use on a preprinted White House card.  The card, bearing the inscription “with best wishes,” appears in Paul K. Carr’s book The Eisenhower Files: An In-Depth Philographic Study.  A signature stamp made from the same pattern appears as a free frank on an envelope postmarked June 19, 1960—during the Eisenhower presidency, but not on a White House envelope.  History In Ink owner Rick Schnake was sent the envelope for consideration but declined it because it had a stamped signature.Subsequently the same envelope appeared in a major autograph auction.  Following are illustrations of the White House card that appears in Carr’s study and the stamped free frank.The patterns match exactly, indicating that the signature was used both as a printed facsimile and a stamp.

About the Author

Andreas Wiemer

Andreas Wiemer

I started collecting autographs of famous personalities as a teenager in 1985. During the last 15 years I’m specialized in buying and selling rare historical autographs, documents and manuscripts. My large reference library includes all the standard works with more than 100 books on the subject. I’m a member of all major autograph organizations and the author of several published articles and reference books incl. the standard works: “John F. Kennedy – autograph study” and “Presidents of the United States – AUTOPEN GUIDE”. My slogan has always been: "Think inversely". Before you purchase an autograph you should think along the lines that it is not genuine, then do your research hoping to prove otherwise.
