On July 19, 2019 the USA issued 2 first class domestic rate (forever) stamps to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. The two stamps are arranged in alternating fashion in a self-adhesive sheet of 24. One stamp depicts astronaut Buzz Aldrin in his spacesuit with the lunar landscape in the background.

The other stamp, shown here, features a high contrast, silver on black photograph of the moon with the Sea of Tranquility landing site of the lunar module highlighted by a bright dot.

On January 19, 1990 Finland issued these two stamps (Facit #s 1099-1100) with "globe" hologram to announce the "conversion of Posts and Telecommunications...from a government office into a state commercial company" (Facit).

The globe with logo hologram changes color when tilted, as shown from the phone pic. Also, the cel phone pic interprets the stamp's color better than the scanner.

On June 15, 1970 Japan issued a set of three stamps to publicize its hosting of Expo '70. This stamp (Sc #1030) is the 15 yen middle value and it depicts a globe doubling as a peephole to a panorama of the Expo buildings. Advertising from Japan Post Office describes it as "View of halls and pavilions at the exposition."

These 15 yen stamps were prepared as traditional sheets, having 5 vertical rows of 4 stamps. Later, a booklet of the three stamps was released (6/22/70) in which one copy of the 15 yen stamp was included. There is a straight edge on the left side of this stamp.

On June 29, 1970 a souvenir sheet of the 3 values was issued.

From Wikipedia, "Expo '70 was a world's fair held in Suita, Osaka, Japan between March 15 and September 13, 1970. The theme of the Expo was 'Progress and Harmony for Mankind'. This was the world's first world's fair in Japan."

This November 24, 1947 first day cover from the Philippines publicizes the U.N.'s ECAFE Commission. The 6c stamp (SC. #517) is the middle value from a set of 3 of the same design. The United Nations's logo, an azimuthal equidistant globe projection, is the central element of the stamp design.

From Wikipedia, The Commission was first established by the Economic and Social Council on 28 March 1947 as the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East (ECAFE) to assist in post-war economic reconstruction."
