1983 NASA STS-8 Challenger Space Shuttle
$9.35 Express Mail First Day Cover Carried on Challenger

Outside of 6-page presentation folder for STS-8 Flight Cover (11 x 17 in.)
Here is a STS-8 Flight Cover that was carried on the Challenger Space Shuttle. It left earth on August 30, 1983 and returned on September 5, 1983. It is also a first day cover (FDC) of the $9.35 Express Mail Stamp, Scott 1909. The crew on this mission were Richard H. Truly, commander, Daniel C. Brandenstein, Dale A. Gardner, Guion Bluford, and William B. Thornton. The cover bears four cancels, one dated Aug 14, 1983 from Kennedy Space Center (the original scheduled launch date), one on Aug 30 on the actual launch date, and two (one on the front and one on the back) on Sep 5 from Edwards AFB, California, when it landed.

The cover is in a beautiful 6-page presentation folder produced by NASA and the USPS with large, impressive photos of the Challenger Space Shuttle and details of the mission. This is the first and only cover sanctioned by NASA and the USPS and actually carried to the moon. A real piece of history. The cover bears serial number 19332. SOLD
