On the reverse of the cover is a black and white Apollo 11 insignia on the flap and below is a black and white photo of the 'For all mankind...' plaque left on the lunar surface." Both the FDC and Gordon's handwritten description are in very fine condition, suitable for framing and prominent display! From the collection of Richard Gordon.
