Apollo 11 First Man on the Moon/Moonlanding
First Day Covers, (#C76)
Notes

  • Covers on this list are cataloged using
    • Mellone's Specialized Cachet Catalog of First Day Covers of the 1960's for the #C76 stamp, this catalog has 252 cachets listed.

    • AND
    • Moonlanding--Historical Account and Cachet Listing of #C76 (Second Edition) by Harry L. Anderson and Monte Eiserman. This catalog has 372 cachets listed.
  • The catalog numbers in both of these catalogs are the same, however the Anderson/Eiserman catalog lists varieties of the cachets and gives them letter suffix numbers such as 49a, or 49b etc., while the Mellone catalog just gives one catalog number such as 49 even though other varieties may exist.


  • The Item ID's on the below listings are the numbers from these two catalogs:
    • I use a 4 digit alpha/numeric number, and so a Item ID number of M049 signifies that it is a Mellone/Anderson/Eiserman catalog number of 49, with these exceptions:
    • #1. Any letter(s) following the 4 digit alpha/numeric number are my own. IF there is only one suffix letter, it signifies a different variety of cover for the same Mellone/Anderson/Eiserman catalog number, such as what type of cancel, a different city cancel, a cover with an autograph, how the cover is addressed, etc.
    • #2. If there are two suffix letters after the 4 digit alpha/numeric number, the first letter is the variety of cachet as listed in the Anderson/Eiserman catalog, for example an Anderson/Eiserman catalog number of 49a would be listed as an Item ID of M049AA, with the first letter suffix signifying it is a green and orange cachet as noted in the catalog and the second letter suffix is my own letter system as described in #1 above.
    • #3. If there is no Mellone/Anderson/Eiserman catalog number then the Item ID will be a 4 digit alpha/numeric number starting with an "N" (signifying NOT in Mellone or Anderson/Eiserman catalogs) and 3 numbers of my own identification.
    • #4. The last Item ID number in this list is "SON01", this is NOT a cover but an Apollo 11 first day cancel on a pair of Apollo 11 stamps, which is commonly called a "Socked on the Nose" cancel.

    An often asked question about the Apollo 11 First Day Covers....
    Why does it have
    two dates in the postmark: July 20 and Sept. 9, 1969?

  • The master printing die for the Apollo 11 stamp was carried to and from the moon in July, 1969. When the printing die returned to earth it then it was used to make the printing plates for the postage stamps that were issued by the Post Office and used on these first day covers.
  • These postage stamps were not ready to be released to the public until September 9, 1969, and this is the date of first issue that appears in the postmark.
  • This Sept. 9 postmark also reproduces the July 20, 1969 cancel of the first moon mail which was used to cancel a proof of the 10 First Man on the Moon stamp cancelled on the moon, this is the commemorative part of the Sept. 9, 1969 cancel.
  • The 10 First Man on the Moon stamp was designed by artist Paul Calle and this postage stamp is the first jumbo-size commemorative issue. This Apollo 11 first day cover was the most popular ever issued with a record 8,743,070 postmarked at Washington, D.C., the official city of release.

APOLLO 11 FIRST DAY CARD (#C76), with a Washington DC pictorial hand cancel of 09/09/1969, showing the "Moon Landing Jul 20, 1969 USA" commemorative cancel. With a red rubber stamp cachet (unidentified) showing the Apollo Eleven emblem of the eagle about to land on the moon. The reverse side of this card has a printed design of the Apollo 11 plaque that was left on the surface of the moon, against a silver background. The card size is 3-3/8 inch by 5 inches. The left side of the cancelled card has a ding in the edge and in one corner. An unusual item never the less, but priced accordingly for the dings (Slight flaws that spoils the overall appearance of the card). (The plaque shows two globes representing both sides of the world, with text: "Here men from the planet earth first set foot upon the moon July 1969 A.D. We came in peace for all mankind." and has the names and signatures of the 3 Apollo 11 astronauts and President Nixon).
