Purgatory Post commemorates Apollo 7’s 50th anniversary
Purgatory Post has been commemorating the anniversaries of the various United States space flights for a while. This month marks the 50th anniversary of the flight of Apollo 7, and the New Hampshire-based private local post operated by Scott Abbot, another Local Post Collectors Society member, has released a pair of stamps commemorating that mission. Both stamps have face values of 7 sola.
The first stamp in this pair pitctures crew members Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walt Cunningham, along with Apollo 7 just after liftoff. The second stamp depicts one stage of the Saturn rocket used to propel the crew into space.
I understand from Scott that he plans to continue this series to commemorate the rest of the Apollo missions, so we should see plenty more stamps along these lines over the next year or so.
