Very cool, thanks.

I've also been scanning my collection. Nothing particularly rare or valuable, I just like them.

My favourites have to be the one signed by Ed Fendell and the Apollo 17 recovery force one with the handwritten letter inside.

I was fascinated with your exhibit in New York and it's nice to see this portion of it once again. I've never seen this type of material here in the US. Thanks for sharing it.

Thank you for your warm words, Ray. I am glad you liked my collection at NY exhibition last year.

Fantastic assembly of superb rocket and space mail covers, Walter; very impressive! Are you still looking for any of the Apollo 12 Bishop covers that flew on 15?

To get an idea of the state of collecting way back when here is an advert from the back page of the June 1936 issue of the "Journal of the British Interplanetary Society."
