    Dgn 55

    Dgn 55: Sc. 3178 Mars Pathfinder — $3 souvenir sheet on a 8½"x11" bright blue Dragon Card with the full souvenir sheet and one of the $3 Palau Mars Pathfinder souvenir sheets issued a year earlier. Illustrations are of the Rover and a fantasy spaceship; text. Only 31 produced — larger illustration (new window)...$10.00

Illustrations are of the Rover and a fantasy spaceship. But there was a mistake in the text under the Palau souvenir sheet — the wrong year of issue. So on most Dragon Cards for this issue, the Palau sheet was re-positioned to hide the text! But here's one produced before I caught the mistake. — larger illustration (new window)...$10.00

    Sold Out!

    The 5 stamps selected from the 1960s Celebrate the Century sheet of 15 were all serviced on Dragon Cards printed on "psychedelic"-colored cardstock. That's why Moon Landing is on a magenta card and Star Trek is on a yellow-green card — both "dayglo" colors.
