The First Day of Issue is today, for the 1969 First Moon Landing Forever Stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. On social media there I’m enjoying seeing #MoonLandingStamps #AstronautStamps #Apollo11at50 #stampnerd #MoonLanding50 #Apollo11.
“On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin achieved something that had long been confined to the realm of science fiction when they landed a spidery spacecraft named Eagle on the Moon. A Worldwide audience watched and listened when Armstrong stepped onto the Moon’s surface and famously said, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.”
I’m including a screenshot of a video the USPS posting at Facebook today on 1969 First Moon Landing Forever Stamps. It is clickable to view it.
Furthermore, I’m including this Tweet from Tom Ouellette with the USPS on the 1969 First Moon Landing Forever Stamps.
In conclusion, over at the USPS Postal Store #479104, I have already ordered 1969: First Moon Landing Stamp Ceremony Memento. Also, an extra sheet of the 24 Forever stamps. This is the first time I’m recalling ordering the whole set. There are other mementos available too. See you tomorrow!
