Project Mercury Issue United States, 1962
On February 20, 1962, Col. John Glenn became the first U.S. astronaut in orbit, circling the earth three times (at 17,500 miles per hour) in the Mercury space capsule, "Friendship 7." This mint stamp was placed on sale in 305 selected post offices throughout the United States on February 20, 1962, at the exact hour the historic flight was officially completed (this was the first time the U.S. honored an event with an unannounced, simultaneously issued commemorative stamp).

Scott Cat.# 1193

The above image is an enlargement; the actual stamp measures 26 x 40 mm.
