Plugged 9 discussion - turns out some early Apollo covers were in this mix. In fact, I believe I see one three of these covers slightly up-page. Ok ok, so up the PREVIOUS page.

So Rismoney ,I cannot answer that question about the background on the per-fins. I only can say that I have examples of there use on the following. Philgraf ,Astro Documenta, KSC VIP cards and a Crew emblem cachet cover. Most of the examples are on the Rover/Earth Sun and Landing craft on the Moon Space Achievement Issue.However I have few examples on the Apollo 8 Moon Surface and Earth stamp and the 10 cent Moon landing Issue Scott's C 76. I will post these later.

These are all awesome, everyone. I'm hoping when the Artemis missions begin I can have some covers honoring those.

Here are the Astro Documenta covers. There are four different cancel types, the first is a example of the KSC visitor center type.Note the rounded top of the capsule and squat appearance of the Saturn Five is the trade mark look. These where process at the visitor center as souvenirs where people gathered to watch the launches who where not able to obtain a car pass to the specific areas within the Space Center for launch viewing.The second is a Patrick AFB machine cancel,a Canaveral machine cancel and the KSC post office machine cancels.

I hope no one minds me bumping this fantastic thread with some new Apollo covers! I present an Apollo 16 U.S. Embassy - Chile cover, signed by the (I believe) NASA tracking station commander, Chester Shaddeau. Next, I have an Apollo 11 PRS cover signed by Captain C.J. Seiberlich. Finally, an Apollo 17 Grand Bahama Tracking Station cover signed by the commander, Thomas Morris. I really have an interest in the tracking station covers for whatever reason.




Edit: I forgot to add one of my most recent purchases, the Doc's Local Post Apollo 17 cover, numbered 20/100.

I own a small share of this one so I am posting it. No cachet, no signatures, some inking issues but the best one there is and ever will be for Apollo covers; a FDC too.

This cover was canceled on the Moon by astronaut Dave Scott on August 2, 1971, during the Apollo 15 mission. It carries two advance, hand-perforated die proofs of stamps celebrating the U.S. space program. Smudges at the bottom left are believed to be "thumbprints" Scott made with moon dust using his space-suit glove.

I had no idea that cover existed. Considering Apollo 15 is one of my favorite missions, I'm a bit ashamed!

That cover from Apollo 15 is on exhibit in the Postal Museum in DC. Seen it many times.
