Along with a set of photos I bought at the end of January, there was a small card (13.5x11cm) from the US Embassy in France, with a printed reproduction of the plaque from Apollo 11 and a message from the US ambassador of that time (Sargent Shriver). With it, came four identical pictures of the Apollo 11 crew, about the same size as the card (no writing on the back).

I wonder if the photo could have been sent by the embassy or if it was unusual at that time? All the photos have the same mark on the top left that is not on normal crew photo so it makes me wonder.

All times are CT (US)
