Cover signed by the Apollo 13 prime crew and key members of the recovery team

Apollo 13 recovery cover with a stamped cachet honoring the US Navy Pacific Recovery Force, postmarked aboard USS Iwo Jima on April 17, 1970, signed in black ink by Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert. Also signed by Leland E. Kirkemo, captain of the Iwo Jima; Rear Admiral Donald C. Davis, Commanding Officer of Task Force 130, the Pacific Recovery Forces; and Chuck B. Smiley, pilot of the recovery helicopter. Corner-mounted to a presentation sheet featuring images of the crew and their successful recovery. In very fine condition, with very subtle haloing to Haise's signature. An excellent Apollo 13 piece with an unusual combination of autographs. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Zarelli Space Authentication.
