Description

Charles Conrad's Apollo 12 'Type 1' insurance cover bearing a mission emblem cachet with Navy wings underneath, postmarked at the Kennedy Space Center on November 14, 1969, signed in black felt tip, "Charles Conrad, Jr.," "Dick Gordon," and "Alan L. Bean." Lightly affixed to a certificate signed in blue felt tip by Conrad, "Charles Conrad, Jr., CDR Apollo XII," with typed caption: "This Apollo XII crew cover was signed by the entire Apollo XII crew just days before our launch on November 14, 1969. The set of covers were originally planned to be flown on our flight to the moon. However, we collectively agreed not to fly them to avoid favoritism due to multiple requests to fly a variety of covers in our personal preferences kits. This cover is one from my personal collection." In fine condition, with a brush to the last letter of Gordon's first name, and the postage stamp applied over the ends of Conrad and Cordon's signatures.
