    Description

    Apollo 14 Crew-Signed "Type One" Insurance Cover. A philatelic cover with the "Apollo 8" 6¢ stamp (Scott #1371) affixed, bearing a pictorial machine cancellation from Kennedy Space Center dated February 5, 1971, the day that Apollo 14 landed on the moon. The cachet is the mission insignia with three sets of wings printed beneath- two gold Navy (for Shepard and Mitchell), and one silver Air Force (for Roosa). Each astronaut has signed near his wings: "Al Shepard", "Stuart Roosa", and "Ed Mitchell". Insurance covers were typically signed by the entire crew before the flight and left behind for the families to sell should their loved ones not survive the mission. Fully-signed Apollo 14 insurance covers are not common. Excellent.
