Lot #8076
Elliot See Signature

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+

Description

Unusual ballpoint signature, "Elliot See,” on an off-white 3.5 x 6.5 envelope bearing autopen signatures of his fellow 'New Nine' astronauts, the second group of astronauts selected by NASA. Curiously, the cover is postmarked to July 20, 1969, the moon-landing date of the Apollo 11 mission, and more than three years after See died in a tragic NASA T-38 crash on February 28, 1966, which also took the life of his slated Gemini 9 co-pilot Charles Bassett. In fine condition.
