The Lim- / ited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty was the first step in controlling / the dangers of nuclear power, and a beginning of mutual / restraint in the use of that power among all the nations of / the world. / The historic U.S. mint stamp on this panel portrays the / earth from two perspectives: the eastern and western hem- / isphere, joined in the bond of an atomic particle. On it are / inscribed the words, "Atoms for Peace." It was issued in / 1955.
