Lot #8625
STS-1 Signed Cover

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+

Description

FDC with a stamped cachet honoring the first flight of Space Shuttle Columbia on STS-1, signed in black ballpoint by John Young and Bob Crippen. Interestingly, Young's signature and the cachet image date to the Gemini era (Young flew on both Gemini 3 and Gemini 10); the postage stamp, red-stamped STS-1 text, postal cancelation, and Crippen's signature would have been added later. In very fine condition.
