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. US 3413, "Landing on the Moon", sheet of 1, $11.75, Express Mail rate stamp, commemorating the Apollo space program's, first man landing on the moon. The stamp is a holographic image of a lunar lander hovering just above the moon's surface. The moon appears twice on this stamp - below the lander and in the background. Three-dimensional NASA models and computer imaging were used to create the stamp. Original background photo, taken by Apollo 16 mission commander John Young, on April 1972, of lunar module pilot Charles M. Duke Jr, collecting samples near the Plum crater. US 3412, "Space Achievement & Exploration", Circular Hologram Stamp, sheet of 1, $11.75, Express Mail rate stamp. This stamp issue was the first circular stamp issued by the United States and features an extraordinary holographic image of the Earth; with the holographic animation design, you can see the Earth rotate 25 degrees east and west.

This poster press sheet has the first US Holographic stamps, the first US Hexagon stamps and the first US Circular Hologram stamp. The 15-stamp space exploration set has face value, of $38.50 and I have seen one of these same poaters, getting a $200.00 bid, on it. You can buy it here and now, for only $100.00 and that is with FREE SHIPPING . Very Nice display piece. Other photo's can be requested.
