Very rare Apollo 15 flown 'Shamrock' cover with cachets of a green shamrock, a small Apollo 15 emblem, and a rendering of the Lunar Rover with two astronauts, signed in black felt tip, “Carried to the moon, Jim Irwin,” and numbered “6” in the lower left corner. In very fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Ken Havekotte stating, “This cover, No. 6, has been in the possession of Irwin’s youngest daughter…since her father returned to the moon until it was sold…in February 2000.” Also included is a photocopy of the manifest of Irwin’s PPK listing the covers. Only eight of these covers were flown to the moon with Irwin and research shows only one having been sold at public auction in the last 15 years. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
