MICKEY AND GOOFY HONOR MARK TWAIN
Save $2 on this 1985 Maldives Mint Commemorative Sheet
"I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year (1910), and I expect I'll go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley's Comet."
Mark Twain wrote this in 1909, a year before his passing and the return of Halley's Comet to the skies. Prophetically, the comet was at its brightest on April 20, 1910, the day before Twain died.
Disney characters pay tribute to one of America's greatest authors and humorists with this colorful sheet showing Mickey Mouse as Tom Sawyer and Goofy as Huckleberry Finn riding the comet. This whimsical sheet actually commemorates three events: International Youth Year, the 150th anniversary of Mark Twain, and the 75 to 76 year return of Halley's Comet.
