    Description

    Apollo AS-201: Neil Armstrong Signed Launch Cover. A philatelic cover with a Swanson SpaceCraft cachet, cancelled on February 26, 1966, at Cape Canaveral, signed in felt tip: "Neil Armstrong". The text reads, in part: "First Flight-Rate APOLLO Model Three-man spacecraft in sub-orbit flight... Saturn IB is the second generation of Saturn Rockets". AS-201 was the first unmanned test flight of an entire Block I CSM with a Saturn IB launch vehicle. The entire flight lasted 37 minutes, 19.7 seconds, but was a very important test of the service propulsion system & the reaction control systems as well as the heat shield. First of these we have offered. Very fine.
