Unique Orville Wright cover carried on Apollo 15
Description  

One-of-a-kind flown early airmail cover carried on the Apollo 15 mission, 6.5 x 3.5, with a stamped cachet commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Wright Bros. first flight and cancellation of December 17, 1928, signed on the cachet in fountain pen by Orville Wright. Some soiling to the right side, otherwise fine condition. This Orville Wright signed cover is well established as having been carried on Apollo 15 for a friend by Command Module Pilot Al Worden. The cover was originally sold at auction in 2007 and is accompanied by corresponding paperwork confirming provenance. An incredible association connecting manned spaceflight with its origin and the missing link for the flown Apollo cover completest. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
