Description


Flown ‘Phases of the Moon’ postal cover carried into lunar orbit during the Apollo 15 mission, signed in the lower left in black felt tip by Dave Scott, Al Worden, and Jim Irwin. The cover has an affixed color cachet which shows all 15 phases of the moon and bears an August 7, 1971, USS Okinawa recovery postal cancellation. An address label for stamp dealer F. Herrick is also affixed to the lower right. In fine condition. One hundred and forty-four of these covers, created by Herrick, were carried in Al Worden’s PPK kit on board the Endeavour during the mission. Accompanied by the original souvenir card inside the envelope and a photocopy of a letter from Worden to Herrick, stating that the covers were indeed carried to the moon and back on Apollo 15 and actually signed while in flight. A scarce and sought-after flown cover with an especially appealing image of the moon’s phases. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
