Description

Exemplary Apollo 16 insurance cover, certified by the mission commander

Scarce Apollo 16 insurance cover with a cachet of the mission insignia and two sets of astronaut wings, bearing an April 16, 1972, Kennedy Space Center launch date postmark, signed in blue felt tip by John Young, Charlie Duke, and Ken Mattingly. Uncharacteristically stamped on the reverse, “Original Apollo 16 Insurance Cover, Pre-launch signed on obverse from my personal collection,” signed below in black ink by Young. In fine condition. The majority of Apollo 16 insurance covers are not certified on the reverse like this superior example, which boasts bold vintage signatures of the historic Apollo 16 crew.
