Gerald R. Ford signs a first day cover honoring the 1975 postage rate.
First Day Cover signed: "Gerald Ford", 6½x3¾. First Day Cover in the vignettes of Americana series issued for the new 1975 postage rates, two 13-cent stamps picturing the Liberty Bell affixed, postmarked Allentown, PA, November 25, 1975, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Background for the 13-cent Liberty Bell Coil Version imprinted on verso. This stamp was issued during Ford's presidency (1974-1977). On August 9, 1974, Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006) was sworn in as the nation's 38th President following the resignation of Richard Nixon. Ford had previously served as Nixon's Vice President (December 6, 1973-August 9, 1974) following the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew, becoming the only man to have held both of the nation's highest offices without being elected to either. Ford, who was previously a U.S. Congressman from Michigan (1949-1973; Minority Leader, 1965-1973), lost his bid for election to a full four-year term partially as a result of his controversial pardon of his predecessor. Ford, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1999, celebrated his 93rd birthday on July 14, 2006. Before his death on December 26, 2006, Ford had surpassed Ronald Reagan (who also lived to age 93) as the longest-lived former U.S. President. Fine condition.
