I HAVE ALREADY HAD THIS ITEM INDEPENDENTLY EXAMINED AND AUTHENTICATED IN THE US BY PSA - THE BUYER WILL RECEIVE THE ORIGINAL AUTHENTICATION LETTER WITH THE FDC.

Both the FDC (on the rear) and the authentication letter carries tamper-proof authenticator numbering: AE32663.

Sir Edmund Percival Hillary, KG, ONZ, KBE (1919-2008) was born in Auckland and was the only living New Zealander to appear on the nation's currency!

As a mountaineer, explorer and humanitarian Sir Ed achieved international recognition with the first successful climb of Mount Everest in 1953 with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.

FROM MY PRIVATE COLLECTION, HERE IS AN ITEM THAT FEATURES THE AUTOGRAPH OF THIS GREAT HUMAN BEING.

The autograph is on a LIMITED-EDITION, official, 50th anniversary, FDC of the conquest of Everest which is approx 9-inches x 5-inches and is in mint condition.

Oly six hundred of these FDCs were released worldwide and this is 339\600.

Sir Ed signed in black ink USING HIS FULL SIGNATURE "E. P. HILLARY" RATHER THAN THE MUCH MORE COMMON "ED HILLARY".

Sir Ed's signature is permanent.

Sir Ed's signature is crystal clear, perfectly legible and completely free from any stains, smears, smudges or bleeding.

As always - no nonsense - I GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF THIS AND EVERY SIGNATURE IN MY COLLECTION FOR LIFE or your money back and I put that in writing too!

COMBINED SHIPPING - I am always happy to combine, so if you buy two or more items there will only be one delivery charge :)
