NASA Local Post (NLP) and Space City Cover Society (SCCS)

Project Apollo FDC

Not all of the Apollo covers shown below would be considered "First Day of Issue"
for the NASA Local. The "Non-First Day of Issue" covers were created to document a
major milestone in the mission.

Covers for Apollo 7 and 8 have a rubber-stamped cachet, while those of Apollo 9
and later have printed cachets.
