Lot 151: Block of four five-cent stamps issued in 1963 to honor the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, 2.25 x 4, signed in blue ballpoint, "Best wishes, Martin Luther King." Poor contrast of the signature against the background of the same color, otherwise fine condition. A fantastic association between important eras of progress in American civil rights, especially as King gave his iconic 'I Have a Dream' speech during the year these stamps were issued.
