Fantastic opportunity to own a limited edition Signed First Day Cover issued to mark the globally historic 50th anniversary of the very first Moon Landing
On 20th July 1969 the Apollo 11 space flight successfully touched down on the Sea of Tranquillity and landed on the Moon. The Mission Commander, Neil Armstrong, walked into the history books and became the very first human to step foot on the Moon. This moment was immortalised by his legendary words ‘one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’, which was broadcast live worldwide to an estimated half billion TV audience – the largest ever at the time.
In 2019, to mark the 50th anniversary of the very first successful moon landing, a stunning limited-edition signed cover has been issued by the Isle of Man Post Office. The cover features two brand new, first class commemorative stamps issued especially for the historic anniversary. The stamps are cancelled on the very first day of issue – 21st July 2019 – setting in stone the low worldwide edition limit of only 500 covers. To complete the cover, it is signed by Mr George Abbey, former Center Director of NASA Johnson Space Center.
Included for FREE with this signed cover is an A4 sheetlet featuring eleven Moon Landing commemorative stamps issued by the Isle of Man Post Office. All stamps are in pristine, unmounted mint condition and are presented within a stunning presentation folder.
The global demand for signed Moon Landing commemoratives and the significance of mankind’s achievement are two key reasons why the cover is in very high demand. Harrington & Byrne has managed to secure a small number of these attractive signed covers to offer today.
