Total edition is 30 000 post cards.
The card was postmarked with the special official cancellation also devoted to the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the “Luna-10”. The postal cancellation was organized in Moscow (post code 101 000); Baykonur Cosmodrome (post code 468 320); the town of Khimki, Moscow region (post code 141 402), the place where the “Luna-10” was made.

Although the card issue and the postal cancellations are devoted to the launch Anniversary of “Luna-10”, the postal cancellation was conducted on April 12 instead of March 31, the real date of lift off.
