It's ink and not a stamp or print, along with that bit... I know it was framed in 1955. 

Celebrity graphs are more my speed, any presidential collectors want to weigh in so that I can tell him if it is worthy of re-framing?

Didn't match the sources I found for secretarial signatures, but I can never tell if I am seeing all the material available.

In my opinion, it is not an authentic signature of Dwight D. Eisenhower. It appears to be based on the post-presidential (1960s) Gettysburg metered franking signature.

Thank you Mr. D. 

I have seen the Gettysburg franking signature and the resemblance is certainly there. The thing that threw me for a loop was the interior of the frame, which does not appear re used was signed by the framer in 1955.

When Eisenhower left the White House in 1961 for his Gettysburg home (bought in 1950), he id not sign a signature for an Autopen. One of his assistants signed his  name "Dwight Eisenhower" which was used to sign his name. I have never seen an authentic Eisenhower signature without his middle initial.

Thanks again, I really appreciate your help.
