I just got my new latest stamp acquisition in the mail today! This sheet is so awesome! If you hold it in the light just right the stamps, which are holograms, show up in three-D! This is a really cool sheet. The title of my space collection is "From Kitty Hawk to the International Space Station". So this stamp sheet is the first stamp in that section and puts the period at the end of my collection. Not the end of my collecting space stamps, but now I have stamps commemorating Kitty Hawk and the International Space Station.

In 1965 Jordan issued a set of stamps to honor the Gemini Astronauts. The three flights were Gemini 6, 7, and 8.
Gemini 6 (December 15, 1965) - Thomas Stafford and Walter Schirra
Gemini 7 (December 4, 1965) - Frank Borman and James Lovell
Gemini 8 (March 16, 1966) - David Scott and Neil Armstrong
I really like these! A nice looking set of stamps!

Tonight I decided it was time to wave our flag a little bit. So I made the page and mounted my stamps for the Gemini 4 flight on June 3, 1965. The highlight of which was the first American space walk by Edward H. White.
