Moon Landing Scott C76 Cachet Catalog
2014 Revised and Updated Edition
Original catalog by Monte Eiserman and Harry L. Anderson
Revised edition by David S. Zubatsky


Stacks Image 7466
AFDCS Exclusive! First issued in 1975, the newly-revised edition of this first day cover catalog for the Moon Landing stamp (Scott C76) is now available. The original edition, by Monte Eiserman and Harry L. Anderson, contained illustrations of 205 FDCs, history of the designing and production of the stamp, the first day activities, plate number information, postmarks, and descriptions of the three first day ceremonies. Over the years, some of that material was cut from subsequent editions, while more illustrations were added. The 2014 edition, revised by David S. Zubatsky, restores all the introductory material and adds more information. It also includes all the original black and white illustrations. Available as a PDF download or as unbound printed pages delivered by mail.
