Description


Flown Apollo 16 postal cover, 6.5 x 3.5, with a cachet honoring of the Apollo 16 mission insignia, signed on the front in black felt tip, “Charlie Duke,” and numbered “3” in the upper left corner by Duke. On the reverse, Duke has added a handwritten certification on the envelope flap, which reads, “I certify that cover #3 of a total of 25 carried on the Apollo 16 flight, landed on the moon, approved for stowage in my personal preference kit. Charles M. Duke, Jr.” Cover bears two cancellations, one from the Kennedy Space Center on launch day April 16, 1972 and the other from the day of recovery, April 27, 1972 on the recovery ship USS Ticonderoga. In fine condition, with some mild toning on reverse. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Duke stating “The covers accompanied me during the flight and to the Descartes lunar landing site,” as well as two photos taken at time of signing. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
