    Launch: A standard (No. 6) size philatelic cover with an Orbit Covers cachet cancelled at Cape Canaveral on November 14, 1969.
    Moonlanding: A No. 10 size cover with two different Orbit Covers cachets hand cancelled at Cape Canaveral on November 19.

    These would make a great display. All three excellent.
