Sweden’s Moon Landing 50th Anniversary Sheet
Has a Neat Swedish Connection
In 2019, Sweden was one of several countries to issue stamps commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing. It was one of the most significant events of the 20th century – “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
But did you know that the Apollo 11 crew used a Swedish-made Hasselblad camera for most of their famous pictures on the moon? In fact, NASA astronauts started using Hasselblad cameras as early as 1962 and used them on all their Apollo missions through the 1970s. NASA worked closely with the company to develop cameras that could meet their very specific needs for weight and temperature resistance. Renowned around the world for their high quality, the Hasselblad cameras captured once-in-a-lifetime shots in remarkable detail, preserving these historic moments forever.
This Sweden mint sheet features pictures taken with a Hasselblad camera on two of its three stamps. This a must-have for your space or worldwide stamp collection. Order yours now.
