    Bela Lugosi First Day Cancelled (Halloween!) Signed Envelope. This 4" x 7" mailing envelope features the black ink signature of horror legend Bela Lugosi - who signed this first day cancellation October 31, 1944! The $.03 stamp commemorates the "50th Anniversary of Motion Pictures," showing male and female members of the World War II Armed Services watching a film on a makeshift screen tied between trees in a jungle. The original owner has added a small picture of Lugosi (the pose he preferred using in his fan mail) above his signature. The Los Angeles postmark is sharp and clear, with the words "First Day of Issue - Hollywood Sta. -" stamped below the postage stamp. The wonderful black ink signature, the attractive stamp that richly evokes its era , and the All Hallow's Eve date make this a very desirable Lugosi item! Excellent condition. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
