Hi,

Not a stamp collector and figured this would be the place to get some answers. My grandpa just recently passed and found a really cool stamp collection in a frame with a photo, all from NASA. I tried to find this specific item online and have had no luck. I found the stamps; all seem to be from around 1960s-1970s. Just curious if anyone has some information on this, and a better idea of what it may be from. Any information helps thank you!

Very pretty! I would presume that it was assembled sometime between 1978 and 1981, since it includes the Viking Missions to Mars stamp (1978) but not the Space Achievement block of 8 (1981) or anything else later than that.

Its philatelic value is the postage face value. That said, it is a nice presentation, and if I had it I would hang it up in my library. Just be sure to keep it out of direct sunlight.

Looks like it's signed by Paul Calle. He did the artwork for the "first man on the moon" stamp. Might be a numbered print.

Florescent lights can do considerable dame too. Best if you have UV protective glass in the frame.
