    Description

    Soviet Union 1970 Visit: American Cosmonaut Visit 1969 Cover Signed by Fifteen Cosmonauts Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A philatelic cover with a Manned Spaceflight Cover Society cachet for the October 21-23, 1969, Houston visit by Cosmonauts Georgy Beregovoy and Konstantin Feoktistov, cancelled at Houston on the 21st. It is signed by these two as well as thirteen others: Alexei Leonov, Valentina Tereshkova, Gherman Titov, Andrian Nikolayev, Pavel Popovich, Anatoly Filipchenko, Yevgeny Khrunov, Valery Bykovsky, Viktor Gorbatko, Georgi Shonin, Boris Volynov, Vladimir Shatalov, and Alexei Yeliseyev. This is almost certainly a souvenir of Armstrong's visit to the U.S.S.R. as most of these cosmonauts did not visit the U.S. during this period. A unique grouping of the top Soviet cosmonauts. Excellent. Sealed in a numbered archival holder, CAG 1003502-004. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
