Sometimes i wonder if thats what he really looked like. and why are they making postage stamps of him now?

As to his real appearance, I've never really sought out validation of his pictures, but it would be interesting to see if there was some underlying conspiracy to portray him differently.

As to making stamps now, it's to celebrate his 200th birthday. Which is fun and all...though as I see more "novelty" stamps come out, I can't help but feel like the post office is scrambling to try and make money however they can.
