Tanquilty Base...The Eagle Has Landed

July 20, 1969.  There are a handful of other dates in our history that hold as much significance, but this may be the most inspring.

There were nearly nine million first day covers produced feating this stamp.  Here's a link to the story.
Here's a cover from the 10th anniversary.  The image is "silk".

This is one of the iconic photographs from the mission.

Headlines and press releases were ready in the case that the LEM failed to make it off the moon.  Thankfully all went smoothly.
