A Mailer's Postmark Permit like cancellation will be used in Germany on the occasion of the upcoming shuttle mission, STS-122.

The cancellation will be used on launch day in the city of Wessling, the location of ESA's Columbus Control Centre that will control the European experiments in the Columbus module.

The illustration shows a space shuttle with the external tanks and a graphical design of the Columbus module.

I have additional information on this postmarker:

  • Ralf Schulz is selling cacheted covers with this cancel at 2 Euro plus postage. The cachet shows a portrait of Hans Schlegel.

  • Schulz also services stamped and addressed covers (no cardboard stiffeners please - will add his own) for a servicing fee of 50c, both for launch and docking of the mission.
For both, please use the address mentioned in the initial message.

I have added an image with the entire cover today.

Another postmarker has been used for Hans Schlegel's spaceflight by the same initiators of the previous cancels.

It is a cover with a personalized stamp printed by postal services upon order of a private or commercial customer for mass mailings called Infopost. This "stamp" shows a portrait of Hans Schlegel. As a cancellation, a printed slogan type cancel is used, referring to Hans Schlegel on STS-122, and showing the space shuttle with the solid boosters and the external tank.

To obtain a copy, contact Ralf Schulz at the address mentioned before.
