Coveted Apollo 11 'Type 1' insurance cover

Immensely desirable Apollo 11 ‘Type 1' insurance cover with a color cachet of lunar surface activities, postmarked at Houston on July 20, 1969, the moon landing date of the Lunar Module Eagle, signed in black felt tip prior to launch by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. These historic covers were flown to Houston after launch for cancellation by Apollo 10 Commander Tom Stafford in his T-38 jet. In very fine condition. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder. The famous insurance covers, first produced for Apollo 11, were to provide financial security for astronauts' families in case of disaster. They have earned near-legendary status as the ultimate space-related philatelic item and one of the most sought-after formats for astronaut autographs.

Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Zarelli Space Authentication.
