These black, red and blue stamps were printed in honor of PRESIDENT HARRY TRUMAN.


President Truman started his political career after serving as an officer in the U.S. military. His political career as he was elected as a Jackson County, MO judge in 1922, then elected as a U.S. senator is 1934 and 1940. 


In 1945, Truman was selected to be vice president by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a position he did not hold long as FDR died the same year. Truman took the presidential office on April 12, 1945 at the end of World War II. 


These stamps are AUTOGRAPHED by First Lady, ELIZABETH "BESS" TRUMAN


Bess served as First Lady of the United States from 1945 - 1953 and was well-known for being his secretary, though shying away from the public eye unless required to do so. She did not enjoy the social obligations that came with being the first lady as she declined most interview and media requests and often returned to the Truman's Missouri home as often as possible. 


Bess lived to be 97 years old and is the oldest former first lady in the United States history.


Bess' autograph is often sought after by collectors and her autograph paired with stamps featuring her husband is a GREAT ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION.


Included with the Truman stamps is a 1966 5c SIXTH INTERNATIONAL PHILATELIC EXHIBITION (SIPEX) stamp.

This stamp was issued May 21, 1966 in Washington DC by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The stamp was printed using engraving and lithograph.

The colorful SIPEX stamp was released to honor the SIXTH INTERNATIONAL PHILATELIC EXHIBITION -- the first international stamp show held in Washington DC.


All stamps have been canceled with black ink, as seen in the image provided.
