Description

Rare set of three Apollo 16 insurance covers

Remarkable set of three vintage Apollo 16 insurance covers, each bearing a cachet of the mission insignia and two sets of astronaut wings, an April 16, 1972, Kennedy Space Center launch date postmark, and signed in blue felt tip by John Young, Charlie Duke, and Ken Mattingly. Each cover is atypically stamped on the reverse, “Original Apollo 16 Insurance Cover, Pre-launch signed on obverse from my personal collection,” and then signed below in black ink by Young. In overall fine condition. The majority of Apollo 16 insurance covers found on the market are not certified on the reverse like these examples. A sought-after and unprecedented set of the last official Apollo insurance covers.
