Description


Apollo 11 'Type 3' insurance cover with a cachet of the mission insignia, bearing a July 16, 1969, Kennedy Space Center cancellation, numbered on the reverse “BA04,” signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The cover is lightly affixed by two corners to a printed informational sheet signed by Buzz Aldrin, which reads, in part: “This Manned Spacecraft Center Stamp Club postal cover…is one of the ‘insurance covers’ signed by the Apollo 11 crew before our launch on July 16, 1969…The cover displayed above has been in my private collection since 1969 and has an identifier of BA04 written on the reverse side. It was signed by the Apollo 11 crew—Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and myself prior to launch.” In fine, bright condition. The ‘Type 3’ cover rates as the least commonly found of the three Apollo 11 insurance covers and is highly sought after by collectors; this one is further enhanced by its impeccable provenance from the second man on moon. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
