Purgatory Post honors Apollo 8

New Hampshire’s Purgatory Post earlier this month continued its series of stamps noting the anniversaries of historic spaceflight events by issuing a pair of stamps commemorating the Apollo 8 mission. Apollo 8 launched exactly 50 years ago today, and its crew became the first to orbit the Moon.

The first of Purgatory Post’s stamps pictures the crew (Frank Borman, Bill Anders, and Jim Lovell) and their launch, while the other features the mission patch and the famous Earthrise photo, which was also used on the United States Apollo 8 stamp issued in 1969.

Both of these local post stamps are denominated 8-sola, which is Purgatory Post’s currency of choice.
