1960s and 70s space exploration stamps

I found my childhood Stanley Gibbons stamp album today and thought I’d share a few images of some Ajman, Romanian and Czechoslavakian space exploration stamps.

1970 Ajman airmail stamps

These Ajman stamps feature artwork depicting some of the US Apollo missions.

Czechoslavakian stamp

I can’t find the date of this stamp but “člověk na měsíci” translates to “man on the moon” and the 1969 date would seem to celebrate the beginning of the Apollo moon missions. The letter ‘C’ on the astronaut’s chest could relate to Eugene Cernan, an Apollo astronaut of Czech origin.
