Space Cover #211: NASA's 25th Anniversary Cancel

In 1983, the United States Postal Service started to use machine slogan cancels that commemorated the 25th Anniversary of NASA 1958-1983. At least five cities used the cancel which are illustrated above.

Were there any other cities that used the cancels? What was the periods of use?

John, I have "25th" covers from three locations, including Moffett Field and KSC, you displayed, and also Edwards, CA (I can't make out the location of the bottom cancel you displayed)

It looks to be Hampton, VA, home of NASA's Langley Research Center.
