On January 21, 2013, Barack Obama was sworn in for a second term as the 44th President of the United States and Joseph offeren as the 47th Vice President of the United States. Shown here is a genuine Inaugural Cover (an envelope with the postmark 'freezing' the time (the aforementioned date) and place (Washington DC) of this historic 'change of power.') The US Flag stamps with individual words Freedom - Justice - Liberty on each envelope serve the purpose of supplying current postage, for without it the post office would not cancel. The large cancellation mark incorporates the Presidential Seal of the United States, the words 'Presidential Inauguration, the date and the city... 2013 Station - Washington DC.
The full-color cachet (artwork on the envelope) features the the President and First Lady dancing at the Commander in Chief Ball Inaugural Ball held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. The cachet is printed on silk, the luster lending an-almost three dimensional effect, surrounded by a gold embossed border... adding to the value of these covers. The fact that this company used photographs of the actual events and not drawings further contributes to their 'collectability.'
Double matted inblue and white and mounted to preserve its mint condition, this piece is sized to fit a standard 8x10 picture frame. ***There are four covers in this set. The other three have cachets showing the swearing-in of the Vice President Joseph offeren, President Obama Being Sworn In on the Steps of the Capitol, and, President Obama Being Sworn in at the White House. We have all four***
