I've been working on the few engravings of Richard Baratz and found a Gene Hessler reference to his work on US commemorative panels, but I can't seem to find the actual panels.

What I'm looking for is a commemorative panel with a picture of an olympic runner. This would most probably have been issued for the 1984 Olympics.

The second one which I can't find is a panel with a portrait of Martin Luther King. I have a picture of it.



Could anyone tell me which panels these are and which stamp issue they accompanied? Or maybe even be able to post a pic?

Hope so!
:-)

There was a Martin Luther King Jr. issue in 1979, (Scott 1771).



Scott says the issue was designed by Jerry Pinkney, whose name I recognize as a prominent illustrator of children's books. He designed (and I believe drew himself), many of the African American Heritage series for the USPS.

But the pose is somewhat similar to what you show.

Thanks, yes' I've seen that one, but there's no King illustration like mine on the commemorative panel.
