Moon Globe by Replogle Globes, Inc., about 1963

This globe is 6 inches in diameter, with the moon's major known topographical features painted on in shades of gray, green, and black. A 60-degree-wide area on the far side of the moon is left blank on this globe, as these features were unknown at the time the globe was printed.
With the globe came an eight page booklet The Story of the Moon, written by Robert I. Johnson.
