I've seen a dealer mention that Marshall Space Flight Center Station cancels are rare as "hens teeth". Not sure if that's correct, but anyway here's my cover...

The USPS allows organizations to procure pictorial cancels to commemorate their event. These cancels are collected and many covers exist.

John - thanks for the info. The dealer I mentioned is selling on eBay (190701997520).
Marshall Space Flight Center Station cancels are rare as "hens teeth". I know - I have been a NASA Rocket Scientist at Marshall Space Flight Center since 1981
