Description


Commemorative cover with a cachet honoring the five Mercury astronauts who had flown in space as of October 1962, signed in various inks by all of the Mercury 7 astronauts: Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, John Glenn, Scott Carpenter, Wally Schirra, Gordon Cooper, and Deke Slayton. The text notes that the name of the Amherst Post Office of Eau Gallie, Florida, has been changed to "Satellite Beach" in honor of America's brave astronauts. In fine condition, with light haloing to Carpenter's signature. Items signed by all seven of America's first group of astronauts are scarce and highly sought-after.
