Description


Buzz Aldrin’s Apollo 11 'Type 2' insurance Dow-Unicover cover with a cachet honoring the three crew members and the first step on the moon, canceled at Kennedy Space Center on the July 16, 1969 launch date, signed in blue felt tip, "Neil Armstrong," "Buzz Aldrin," and "M. Collins." Included is a printed informational sheet stating that the cover originates from the "Buzz Aldrin Family Space Collection." In very fine condition. These famous insurance covers, produced immediately prior to space missions in order to provide financial security for astronauts' families in case of disaster, have earned near-legendary status as the ultimate space-related philatelic item, with this elusive 'Type 2' variant considered rarer than the 'Type 1' examples.
