The most famous First Day Cover ever issued?

50 years ago this July, millions watched across the globe as Neil Armstrong took mankind’s first steps on the moon.

One of the greatest feats in mankind’s history, today you can be one of a handful of collectors to own the original First Day cover, issued to commemorate this epic event. Today it is regarded as one of the most famous and sought-after First Day Covers ever issued

Originally issued 50 years ago, the stamp you can see has an incredible story.  Remarkably, the master die used to create the stamp actually travelled to the Moon’s surface on board the Apollo 11 module with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin!

Postmarked way back in 1969, 50 years on, these incredibly nostalgic original First Day Covers are now very hard to find.  Especially outside America.

We now have a very limited number, which are now available to collectors on a strict first-come first-served basis.
