    Description

    A perfect match to the "Type Two" Insurance Cover

    Apollo 13 Flight Crew-Signed Launch Cover Directly from the Family Collection of Astronaut Richard Gordon. A philatelic cover with a Bishop cachet of a mission insignia with the gold crew names and astronaut pin below. It bears the 6¢ flag stamp and the Kennedy Space Center pictorial cancellation dated April 11, 1970, and is signed in various inks: "James Lovell", "Fred Haise", and "Jack Swigert". This is identical to the "Type Two" insurance covers that bear the signature of Ken Mattingly. The two covers would display nicely together. Excellent.

    A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this lot.
