Hi folks,

I am looking for a spacialist on KSC hand and machine cancellations for the Space Shuttle area.
Which cancellations were used on which locations?
Which of those cancellations were also backdated?

Best regards from Salzburg, Austria
Walter

Walter--There are a variety of cancel types still in use, some no longer, and one with even a one-time use. In addition to the standard hand/machine cancel devices--both at KSC and Titusville--there were a number of different pictorial postmarks that were used for specific Shuttle-related events and more throughout the 1990s and beyond. Let me know more precisely of what you're looking for.
