    Are there any stamps with jkf on them and do any of you have some of these? Are they worth anything or are they just stamps that have been put into an album and forgotten about? JKF was one of the most populsr presidents and having one of those stamps must be exciting!

    Hello Tasha, there are many JFK stamps from around the world. This one from Aitutaki - Cook Islands. 2013.

    In the years immediately following his assassination there were many JFK stamps issued - and a brisk trade in them. This ad is from the August 14, 1965 Stamps Weekly.

    I have a couple of Kennedy stamps from the U.S. and one from Germany that I know of. They are of nominal value, but I cherish them anyway.

    If you were over the age of eight or nine at the time of his assassination you probably remember exactly where you were, what you were doing.

    Hello all, how true! Apart from my usual daytime job, I used to do theatre lighting some evenings for extra money. I worked on a small platform about 1m2 (10 sq ft) with a 1000 watt spotlight. They interupted the show (The Pirates of Penzance) to make the announcement of JFK,s assassination. After a 2 minutes silence they resumed the show.
    I believe that I could place my feet in my original footprints today.

    Regards, James.

    Now I wonder if anyone here have an intensive collection of the JFK stamps or been an avid collector of it before. :)

    I have to agree the lot looks very nice, but it is not directly in my scope of interest. It is a great lot for someone looking for the Kennedy thematic. I'm a little surprised by Molokai's comment about there not being a study group for that.

    Useful links. I am not specifically collecting these stamps but it is always interesting to read and see details about it. :)

    3rd grade class in Michigan... Mrs. Herschberger. They wheeled in a television (black and white of course...) and traumatized a bunch of us!

    Not so much as a topical but a lot of my groupings have Kennedy in them.

    Good to know. I think I just have two or three of JFK stamps in my collection.:)

    When I think of President Kennedy all that runs through my mind is the assassination video. It is the type of footage that gets burned into your skull. Sad day for the world to see a good man go in such a terrible and public way.

    Those are some pretty awesome JFK stamps. I've started my own presidential collection but do not have any of JFK. I think that speaks to how historic an icon JFK is that he has so many stamps dedicated to him not just here in the United States, but around the world. It shows just how far and powerful America's reach in the world is.
