Dwight Eisenhower

President

1952 Autograph

on NATO Stamp Issue First Day Cover

Likely Secretarial or Auto-pen Post Presidential Period Signature - reflected in Start price.

The postmark date is not the date of the signature. This appears to be a post-presidential secretarial signature, not one signed by Eisenhower himself.
His secretary after he left the White House routinely signed autograph requests for him and omitted his middle initial.
Notice, too, that the first name lacks the i. You can compare this to the secretarial signature from the post-presidential period that appears in Paul Carr's book
"The Eisenhower Files". An example of this same signature appears on page 127. (From question posted to this listing)
