This page contains (selected) covers with "SpaceCraft" cachets, mostly on un-manned satellite launch and event covers. This page includes only SpaceCraft covers that do not contain a SpaceCraft logo, from 1961 thru 1973, unlike SpaceCraft covers which contain this SpaceCraft logo or this SpaceCraft/Swanson logo. Carl Swanson produced SpaceCraft cachets in collaboration with Joe Fitzpatrick, but the vast majority of them contain logos.
On this page, "selected" indicates covers for un-manned satellite (or scientific rocket) launches only, excluding manned missions for which additional covers exist but are not included.
Readers who know of additional information or images are invited to contact the authors using the e-mail addresses found at the link at the bottom of this page.
Below is a list of SpaceCraft cachets on launch covers (including anniversary-of-launch covers, and launch-related event covers).
