Philosateleian Post commemorating first moon landing
In July 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first two men to set foot on the moon. In 2019, Philosateleian Post will celebrate the 50th anniversary of that historic event by issuing a commemorative local post stamp.
The new stamp from my San Antonio-based private local post reproduces a portion of Aldrin’s photograph of his bootprint, and is scheduled to be issued on January 28, 2019.
It may seem like I’m jumping the gun just a bit by issuing this stamp in January, but members of the Local Post Collectors Society of which I’m a part voted earlier this year to select the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing as the subject for World Local Post Day 2019, and World Local Post Day is always held in January, so there you have it.
Format: sheets of 48 (6×8). Design size: 28×28 mm. Separation method: perforated 12. Adhesive: water-activated dry gum. Printing method: inkjet.
