Mariner IV flew by Mars and returned a set of stunning images. This Romanian stamp diagrams this very well. Sadly the limited set of images revealed a cratered surface with no hint of surprises to be found on later space probes.
For all its achievements, Mariner IV shows up on very few space stamps, as at the very same time there was a great deal of noteworthy progress in human space flight.If you want to read about realistic plans to have humans travel to Mars may we suggest The Case for Mars : The Plan to Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must by Robert Zubrin and Richard Wagner.
