HARRY S TRUMAN
Stamp signed by the 33rd U.S. President, framed with photograph to 19x22¼ overall
Stamps signed: "Harry Truman". Block of four uncancelled 4-cent 50 years (1909-1959) of U.S. Arctic Explorations stamps. "26304" imprinted on selvedge. Harry S Truman (1884-1972), who ordered atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima (August 6, 1945) and Nagasaki (August 9) as 33rd U.S. President (1945-1953), signed these stamps that commemorate another military success with nuclear power, the first atomic submarine, the USS Nautilus. Almost 50 years after Robert E. Peary became the first man to reach the North Pole via land (1909), the history-making sub passed under it on August 3, 1958. When Truman became the first President to travel in a modern submarine (1946), he knew that he had brought a swifter end to WWII by ordering the deadly bombings on Japan. Known for his creed, "the buck stops here", Truman fought the Cold War with his Truman Doctrine (1947) and a policy to aid Greece and Turkey in resisting Communist aggression, and he ordered U.S. forces into action after North Korean troops invaded American-supported South Korea (1950). Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 19x22¼.
