Item Description

Aerobee rockets are widely used by Naval Research Laboratory for upper-air soundings at various levels. They are produced at Aerojet-General's Azusa, California facilities.

Photo Grading Standards and Terms Used

1st Generation: This is a photo manufactured near the time when the image was created. Most often from the original negative but not always. Except for VELOX and CROWN paper plus a few others, the film company name does not appear on the back of the paper except in the case of more recent photos. News Agency and Official photos fall into this category automatically. Vintage: These are items of great age but I am unable to date them with precision. An example would be a WWI photo manufactured in 1920-30s or a WWII photo manufactured in the 1950-70s. These are normally very fine collectables and well worth purchasing. Modern Reproduction: Has KODAK or film-name on the back of the paper or some other markings that positively identify it as of recent manufacture. Mostly this covers photos produced from the very late 1980s through today. Real-Photo: This has been developed on film stock and is not a simulated photo like what you would find in a newspaper. Photo: Can be of any type of manufacture but is not a real-photo. Example, lithograph, etc...
