Signed Apollo 11 ‘Type 1’ insurance cover

11 Nov

Signed Apollo 11 ‘Type 1’ insurance cover, 6.5 x 3.5, with a printed 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. Cover is also signed on the reverse, “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 and RR Auction COA.

Bidding for the Space and Aviation Auction opens Nov 13, 2014 & ends Nov 20, 2014
