Description


Scarce Apollo 11 ‘Type 2’ insurance Dow-Unicover cover with a cachet honoring the three crew members and the first step on the moon, bearing a July 16, 1969, Webster, Texas quarantine cancellation, signed in blue felt tip, “Neil Armstrong,” ”Buzz Aldrin,” and “M. Collins.” In fine condition. These 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, with this elusive ‘Type 2’ variant considered rarer than the ‘Type 1’ examples. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
