Description

    Apollo 12 Crew-Signed "Type One" Insurance Cover Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Support Crew Member Paul Weitz, Signed and Certified, with COA. A philatelic cover with the 10ยข "First Man on the Moon" (Scott #C76) stamp affixed, bearing a pictorial machine cancellation from Kennedy Space Center dated November 14, 1969, the day that Apollo 12 was launched. The color cachet features the mission insignia with "Yankee Clipper" and "Intrepid" below to either side of a set of Navy wings (it was an all-Navy crew). It has been boldly signed in black felt tip: "Charles Conrad", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean". Signed on the verso: "As a member or the Apollo 12 Support Crew/ I was presented this Insurance Cover/ by the Prime Crew./ Paul Weitz/ A12-1C-15". Starting with Apollo 11, the astronaut crews would all sign a certain quantity of these covers to be left on Earth as a contingency against their failing to return safely from the moon. In the case of a tragedy, the covers would be sold with the proceeds benefiting their families, not unlike an insurance policy. Included is a small cardstock COA signed by Weitz stating that this is from his personal collection. Excellent.
