    Description

    Apollo 12 Crew-Signed Lunar Landing, Lunar Liftoff, and Splashdown NASA Local Post Covers (Three) Directly from the Family Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon, with COA. Signed in blue ink: "Charles Conrad", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean". As follows.
    November 19, 1969: Cachet text reads: "APOLLO 12 - Second Manned Lunar Landing/ Space City Cover Society". Bears an Apollo 12 LM 5¢ NASA Local Post stamp with a cool Texas/ Apollo cancellation. Also cancelled at Houston on the same day.
    November 20, 1969: Cachet text reads: "APOLLO 12 - Liftoff From The Moon/ Space City Cover Society". Else, same as above.
    November 24, 1969: Cachet text reads: "SPLASHDOWN - Apollo 12 - Mission Completed/ Space City Cover Society". Bears an Apollo 12 CM 5¢ NASA Local Post stamp. Else, same as above.
    Should appeal especially to collectors of Local Post covers. Certainly scarce. All three excellent.

    A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this lot.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
