Lot 190: Exceptional FDC with a cachet honoring the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, signed in blue ballpoint, "Best Wishes, Martin Luther King." In very fine condition. In addition to celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation, this cover captures the defining moment of King's legacy: it is postmarked just twelve days before he led the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, when he gave his iconic 'I Have a Dream' speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial—the landmark depicted in the cachet. King referenced the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation to begin his speech, observing that 'one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free.' An ideal piece in both content and condition. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 458 Wednesday, 12th August 2015 Estimate: $2000-3000
