Noisy, This event has always held a great fascination for me and I had no idea that there was a stamp commemorating it. After seeing your post, I went to HipStamp and found and ordered one. Thanks!

I collect US, Canal Zone, Hawaii, Canada & Provinces, Rhodesia, British Virgin islands, British Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, French Polynesia, Great Britain, Iceland, Third Reich Germany and whatever catches my eye.
Here’s one for the Tunguska meteorite explosion of 1908. I see lots of stamps for comets but very few for meteorites. If you know of any others (from anywhere) please let me know. Thanks.
My list of meteorite stamps (does not include "mineral/slices" such as Central Africa 1261c, dinosaur "comet" where the set is clearly for comets rather than asteroids), catalog number is for Scott unless otherwise noted:
