#395 - Apollo 11 Estimate: $10,000+

The coveted Apollo 11 'Type 1' insurance cover, with bold pre-launch crew signatures

Immensely desirable Apollo 11 ‘Type 1' crew insurance postal 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 just prior to launch by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. These covers were flown to Houston after launch for cancellation by Apollo 10 Commander Tom Stafford in his T-38 jet. Archivally double-matted and framed with a photo of the crew in their white space suits to an overall size of 15.25 x 19.5. In very fine condition. 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.
