SCCS had enough of the "Gemini Twin" stamps flown from KSC to Houston on
the first day of issue to complete about 200 covers with a Houston, Texas cancel.
A steel hand cancel was used as the dark color of the "Gemini Twin" stamps
prevented the machine cancel from showing. The steel cancel still didn't produce
a quality cancel, but at the time this was the only option available.
