According to notices in Linn's Stamp News, two 50th anniversary cancels are available marking Gordo Cooper's Mercury-Atlas 9 (MA-9) flight and the completion of Project Mercury.

There is a Cape Canaveral postmark available from:

50th Anniversary Station
Box 9998
Cape Canaveral FL 32920-9998
There is also a Houston postmark available from:
Project Mercury 50th Anniversary Station
c/o Pamela Barrett
401 Franklin St.
Houston TX 77201-9998
Send stamped envelopes for these postmarks, along with a return envelope, by June 15.

From what I understand, the Cape Canaveral one is actually for the 50th anniversary of the city of Cape Canaveral. The cancels will be for May 16, 2013 and though it will be the anniversary of the MA-9 splashdown and recovery the cancel will honor the city of Cape Canaveral.

All times are CT (US)
