Description


Exceptionally desirable fully crew signed Apollo 11 ‘Type 1’ insurance cover, 6.5 x 3.5, with a color cachet of the moon landing and a July 20, 1969, Houston, Texas, cancellation, signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, and in black felt tip by Michael Collins. This example is especially coveted as it is certified on the reverse by Command Module Pilot Collins, “This cover, from my personal collection, is for Howard Weinberger. Michael Collins, September 14, 2012.” In very fine condition. The famous insurance covers, produced immediately prior to space missions in order to provide financial security for astronauts’ families in case of disaster, have earned near-legendary status as the ultimate space-related philatelic item. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
