DescriptionApollo 14 Mitchell-Signed Official Insurance Cover Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Certified and Signed. A 6.5" x 3.625" cover postmarked with a pictorial cancellation from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, January 31, 1971 (launch date), bearing a U.S. 10¢ "First Man on the Moon" (Scott #C76) stamp. It is attached by archival corners to an illustrated certificate. The cachet bears the mission insignia with three pair of aviator wings beneath as seen only on the official Houston Space Center Stamp Club covers. Insurance covers were typically signed by the entire crew before the flight and left behind for the families to sell should their loved ones not survive the mission. A few of the Apollo 14 covers were not signed but were cancelled at the launch; this is one of those that Dr. Mitchell retained for his personal collection. Excellent condition.
Dr. Mitchell has certified this cover on the front: "Official Cover From Personal Collection/ Edgar Mitchell".

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.View More Testimonials
