Sought-after Apollo 11 ‘Type 3’ insurance cover, 6.5 x 3.5, with a color cachet of the mission insignia and a July 16, 1969, Kennedy Space Center launch date postmark, signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. In fine condition. The ‘Type 3’ cover rates as the least common of the three Apollo 11 insurance covers. Produced and signed just prior to space missions in order to provide financial security for astronauts’ families in case of disaster, insurance covers are the ultimate space-related philatelic item, and one of the most sought-after formats for astronaut autographs.
