Abraham Lincoln 1965 US stamp

It probably won't come as a surprise that I have a particular liking for small stamps that have the feel of the very first stamp - the Penny Black! This 4 cent US postage stamp featuring President Abraham Lincoln was issued on 19 November, 1965 as part of the Prominent Americans Issue between 1965 -1978 and features an instantly recognisable and almost iconic profile portrait of the assassinated president.

This striking little stamp was designed by Bill Hyde and engraved by J. S. Creamer.

I have this stamp! I found it laying in the bottom of an old wooden box. I asked if i could have the box which turned out to be an old army chest after it was going to be tossed into the trash. This stamp was the only thing inside! Thanks for the info.

I opened an old stamp machine to find 12 five cent stamps and 2 four cent. Anyone interested in them?
