    Apollo 12 Crew-Signed Lunar Landing, Lunar Liftoff, and Splashdown NASA Local Post Covers (Three) Directly from the Family Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon, with COA. Signed in blue ink: "Charles Conrad", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean". As follows.
    November 19, 1969: Cachet text reads: "APOLLO 12 - Second Manned Lunar Landing/ Space City Cover Society". Bears an Apollo 12 LM 5¢ NASA Local Post stamp with a cool Texas/ Apollo cancellation. Also cancelled at Houston on the same day.
    November 20, 1969: Cachet text reads: "APOLLO 12 - Liftoff From The Moon/ Space City Cover Society". Else, same as above.
    November 24, 1969: Cachet text reads: "SPLASHDOWN - Apollo 12 - Mission Completed/ Space City Cover Society". Bears an Apollo 12 CM 5¢ NASA Local Post stamp. Else, same as above.
    Should appeal especially to collectors of Local Post covers. Certainly scarce. All three excellent.

    A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this lot.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
