Default Gold Mine Special decal set

https://www.estesrockets.com/media/...964_Catalog.pdf
Seen here at the bottom of the left page. Does anyone have a scan of this? I'm guessing it's the one Bill Cooke used for his recent scratchbuild because it incudes the moon eyes decal.

I have the decal and can scan it, but not until I get back from vacation on Tuesday.
If no one can post it before then, Iíll take care of it.

About a year ago I was trying to get better with Inkscape and used the D-5 goldmine special as practice. I cant find the scan I had ,low quality anyway, but here is the end result.

WOW! So that's where the "Power by Estes" and "Do not tease our passengers" decals on my rescue Bertha came from.
I've never seen this sheet before. This increases the odds that it was built in the'60s as I suspected.

Looks like it just might be. There is most of the decal set on eBay if anyone is interested.

Wow, that's asking a LOT for a partial decal sheet, vintage or not! I doubt it will sell. I have a complete one that I would probably list on Ebay at $4.95.
