Truman Inaugural Cover - Save $11 on this Cacheted Cover

One of the most iconic images of the 1948 Presidential election is Harry Truman holding a newspaper with the headline "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN". In an upset victory over his challenger, New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey, Truman was re-elected President for a second term.

Over 75 years ago, Harry Truman was sworn in as America's 33rd President. It would also be the first inauguration to be shown live on television. Truman, a plain-speaking judge from Missouri, presided over a nation recovering from World War II and its worldwide aftermath, including the increasing Cold War and the tensions that would eventually divide Korea. A sign on his desk proclaimed "The Buck Stops Here", and he is remembered as a man of integrity and accountability. Add this historic 1949 Inauguration Day cover, featuring a pictorial cachet and postmarked on the day of Truman's second inauguration - and save 10% off our regular price! (Cachet artwork may vary)
