The STS-8 Flight Cover USPS/NASA (First Day Cover in Folder with Original Mailer)

By: N/A

Price: $30.00

Quantity: 1 available


A very special offering for collectors of First Day Covers published as a joint effort of the U.S. Postal Service and NASA. The cover itself with its bright logo and stamp is housed in a pictorial folder that measures 8-1/2"x11" and offers information about the cover's design. What makes this so special is the fact that it was stamped three times -- once at Kennedy Space Center August 14, 1983, once aboard the Challenger at launch on August 30, 1983, and then again upon its return to earth on September 5, 1983 at Edwards Air Force Base in Califonria. This marks the first time a cover had been launched into space and returned. The cover itself is in fine condition and the folder near fine with just a few spots of minor edgewear. It also comes in its original mailing envelope from the U.S. Post Office.
