As I was going through my stamp collection, I noticed a 23 carat gold stamp from Ajman.

On the cover of the pamphlet where the golden stamp is housed, it says, 'Apollo Moon Landing Gold Postage Stamp Issue, Honoring the First Men on the Moon.' However, as you open the pamphlet, it says, 'Issued by the Government of Ajman, No. 1051, Quantity Limited to 2000.' and then there is the Apollo 12 (not Apollo 11) patch drawn.

This is the first time I have noticed this error. The golden stamp itself shows Armstrong climbing down the ladder, so this must be a mistake.

Does anyone have this limited issue golden stamp? And does your have the same mistake?

Any takers on this? I was wondering if anyone else had these?

Thoughts?

Zee man, send me note off line on my email. I have a number of gold foil stamps from Dunes area.

Your stamp referenced here is listed WEEBAU page 16, but does not show Apollo 12 folder.
