You are looking at a very rare 1962 Operation Moonstruck 7 LP release of a public service radio series of the United States Air Force Systems Command. This LP set is exceedingly rare and has only ever come up for sale on eBay one time in the past. This appears to be an LP set that was given to certain radio stations for broadcast. It was never released to the general public. These recordings were broadcasted on radio stations over a several weeks span in 1962. 

Visually the Lps grade G+ to VG+. They have mild storage warps that do not affect play. They have superficial surface wear that creates surface noise that never overpowers the audio. I have included an audio clip of snippets of these 7 LPs below to give you an idea of what is in these rare recordings and how these pressings sound. Please see below to listen to clips of these LPs. 

The outer sleeve rigid book grades VG. Looks presentable with just some normal shelf wear.
