Rare vintage commemorative cover with a stamped cachet honoring Neil Armstrong’s fourth of seven flights while testing the rocket-powered X-15 aircraft, postmarked at Edwards Air Force Base, January 17, 1962, and boldly signed in blue ink by Armstrong. In fine condition, with a tiny spot of toning affecting nothing. Accompanied by a glossy photo of Armstrong emerging from the X-15. This cover commemorates Armstrong’s fourth of seven X-15 rocket plane flights flown as a civilian NASA project research pilot while test flying the X-15 from 1960-1962. A bold, uninscribed vintage example from the future moonwalker’s early aviation career. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
