    Description

    Apollo 13 Crew-Signed "Type One" Insurance Cover Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. This philatelic cover features a color cachet of the mission insignia at left with "NASA Manned Spacecraft Center Stamp Club" printed above, and "Official Commemorative Cover" below. To the right are the bold signatures in black felt tip of the original crew: "James Lovell", "Ken Mattingly", and "Fred Haise". It bears a pictorial machine cancellation from Kennedy Space Center, dated April 11, 1970 (launch date) completely above a 6¢ Flag stamp. On the verso is written: "Insurance Cover from my collection/ James Lovell". At the last minute, Ken Mattingly was pulled from the mission because of his exposure to German measles and replaced with Jack Swigert. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this Apollo 13 Insurance Cover was from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
