Caron, the tail gunner, the only defender of the twelve crewmen, aboard the B-29 Enola Gay, signed in black felt tip; a glossy 10 x 8 cardstock photo of pilot Paul W. Tibbets waving from inside the Enola Gay cockpit, signed in blue ink; and an FDC bearing a cachet honoring the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, signed in blue ink by Tibbets; cover is stamped “First Day of Non Issue” because the 'atomic explosion' postal stamp was rescinded by the US Postal Service after protests from the Japanese government.
