+ 1969 Moon Landing FDC (60k JFIF).

FDC purists might note that there's no address on this cover. The actual cover has an address typed on it, which I have obliterated in the image file for privacy reasons.

+ STS-8 Cover (63k JFIF).

This is the cover that flew on the Challenger. The accompanying folder is too big to scan.

+ 20th Anniversary Moon Landing FDC (68k JFIF).

+ Unmanned Spacecraft FDC (107k JFIF).

All the spacecraft on these stamps were built by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. I made this cover and one other like it for the First Day of Issue when I was employed at JPL. The First Day of Issue Ceremony was held on the premises at JPL and the JPL stamp club also had a special cachet made, but to my knowlege there are only three covers like this on JPL stationery. (So you're wondering how there could be three covers if I only made two? I gave an envelope to someone else in exchange for one of his envelopes with a cachet printed on it.)

+ Endeavour Shuttle Launch Cover (127k JFIF).

This is the limited edition cover. The Express Mail stamp contained in the lower left corner of the cover flew on board the Endeavour.
