Franklin D. and Eleanor Roosevelt: Signed Postage Stamps. No date [1940-1945]. Two pieces of card stock containing mounted postage stamps, across which FDR and ER have signed their names, 2.75" x 4" and 5" x 3" respectively. This lot contains two signed items. The first is an uncut series of four five-cent stamps (issued in 1940) honoring Dr. Walter Reed, an accomplished physician and medical research scientist, over which FDR has boldly signed his name on a diagonal. The uncut group is intact with full selvedge, never hinged. The second item is the three-cent stamp honoring FDR (issued in 1945) with "1882-1945" printed beneath his portrait and an image of the White House; ER has signed her name diagonally across the single stamp, with the signature extending beyond the stamp's edges. Both items are in beautiful condition, and, as FDR was a lifelong philatelist, this lot has special significance.
