DescriptionAlan Shepard Signed Rare Cover Commemorating His Meeting with President Kennedy. A philatelic cover with a Goldcraft cachet titled: "Astronaut Shepard Visits President John F. Kennedy A The White House" with a 4¢ "Communications For Peace" stamp cancelled May 8, 1961, in Washington, D.C. It bears a vintage signature in black ink: "A B Shepard Jr". Shepard was awarded the NASA Distinguished Service Medal upon this occasion. First of these we have encountered. Very fine.
