Fawcett • Poe 3¢

In 1941 Robert Fawcett took part in an invitational stamp design competition. His entry was of a 3¢ stamp featuring the writer Edgar Allan Poe. The Poe stamp was possibly for inclusion in a series entitled "Famous American". One wonders…

¿Did Fawcett win?
¿If Fawcett didn't win, who did?
¿Was the stamp issued?
¿Does Fawcett's original art still exist?
