    Description

    Ex. Alan Bean

    Apollo 12 Crew-Signed "Type One" Insurance Cover, Directly from the Family Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Signed and Certified. A philatelic cover with the 10¢ "First Man on the Moon" (Scott #C76) stamp affixed, bearing a pictorial machine cancellation from Kennedy Space Center dated November 14, 1969, the day that Apollo 12 was launched. The color cachet features the mission insignia. It has been boldly signed in black felt tip: "C Conrad Jr", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean". Signed on the verso: "Insurance cover/ from my collection/ Alan Bean/ Apollo 12 LMP". Starting with Apollo 11, the astronaut crews would all sign a certain quantity of these covers to be left on Earth as a contingency against their failing to return safely from the moon. In the case of a tragedy, the covers would be sold with the proceeds benefiting their families, not unlike an insurance policy. Excellent.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
