PHILATELIC NUMISMATIC COVERS

First Day cover with bronze medal commemorating John Glenn's Mercury 6 mission to orbit the Earth.

It features slightly different variation of the coin from the above Mercury set.

Featuring flown metals from an undisclosed space flight, this medal and cover was produced to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Mercury Redstone 4 - Liberty Bell. This was the flight that made Virgil Grissom the third man in space (the second American). Production was limited to 2000 covers.
