The new stamp that commemorates the 100th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s birth isn’t the first time the Postal Service has honored the 35th president. Here’s a look at four other JFK-related stamps, courtesy of “The list.”
1. Kennedy Memorial stamp. This 5-cent stamp was issued May 29, 1964 — the first birthday following the president’s assassination. It showed Kennedy and a quote from his inaugural address: “… And the glow from that fire can truly light the world.”
2. John F. Kennedy stamp. In 1967, Kennedy was honored on his 50th birthday with a 13-cent stamp in the Prominent Americans series.
3. Kennedy Air Mail Aérogramme. JFK was remembered on an 11-cent aerogram issued May 29, 1965, and again on a 13-cent aerogram of the same design issued May 29, 1967.
4. Ameripex ’86 Presidents of the United States IV stamp. This 22-cent stamp, issued in 1986, featured a drawn portrait of Kennedy and his signature.
