Robert F. Kennedy, 1925 – 1968

November 20, 1925:  Birthdate of Robert F. Kennedy.  In 1968, Kennedy was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan – a Palestinian of Jordanian citizenship.  Supposedly he was upset because Kennedy was a supporter of the state of Israel.

In 1979, the United States issued this stamp in memory of RFK.  Shown here is a plate block example, which is the block of 4 stamps in one of the corners of the sheet of stamps, with the selvage and the printing plate number attached.
