USA WORLD STAMP EXPO 2000 UNCUT MINT SOUVENIR SPACE POSTER PRESS SHEET US

Beautiful uncut poster press sheet of the five different Space souvenir sheets [US 3409 to US 3413], issued and released by the United States Postal Service at the USA World Stamp Expo 2000, in Anaheim, CA, in July 2000. It is in mint condition. I am not sure of the Scott Cat number but it is just like US 3412c but with the round hologram stamp.

Includes, clockwise, from upper right:

US 3409, "Probing the Vastness of Space", sheet of 6, $0.60, stamps, honoring the role of observatories and telescopes in the American space program. The six stamps feature the Hubble Space telescope, Radio interferometer (New Mexico), Optical and infrared telescopes (Keck Observatory, Hawaii), Optical telescopes (Cerro Tololo Observatory, Chili), Optical telescope (Mount Wilson Observatory, California), Radio telescope (Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico). US 3411, "Escaping Earth's Gravity", sheet of 2, $3.20, Priority Mail postage rate stamps, featuring holograms of space welders and the International Space Station. US 3410, "Exploring the Solar System". sheet of 5, $1.00, stamps. These stamps feature images of the sun and corona, a cross-section of the sun, the sun and earth, the sun with a solar flare, and the sun and cloads. Beautifully designed by Richard Sheaff.
