    Description

    Apollo 13 Crew-Signed "Type Two" Insurance Cover. A philatelic cover with the 6¢ "Flag" stamp affixed, bearing a pictorial machine cancellation from Kennedy Space Center dated April 11, 1970, the day that Apollo 13 was launched. The color cachet features the mission insignia with the crew surnames below along with an astronaut pin. It has been signed in black felt tip down the center: "James Lovell" (cancellation touches his signature), "Ken Mattingly", and "Fred Haise". Mattingly was replaced on the mission at the last minute by Jack Swigert but the covers had already been signed at that point. These insurance covers played a special role by allowing the astronauts to have peace of mind during their mission, knowing that their families would have some financial security should circumstances not allow them to return home. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
