Description

    Apollo 16 Crew-Signed Insurance Cover Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. The crewmembers' signatures, "John Young", "Ken Mattingly", and "Charlie Duke" are all in blue felt-tip on this cacheted philatelic cover, 6.5" x 3.625" in size, featuring the "United States in Space" U.S. 8¢ stamp. It bears a space pictorial cancellation on the day of launch, April 16, 1972, at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The color cachet features the Apollo 16 mission insignia with Astronaut pins at lower left and right. The verso bears the following typed certification: "Original Apollo 16 Insurance Cover/ Pre-launch signed on obverse/ from my personal collection/ [signed] John Young". Insurance covers were a tradition that started with Apollo 11 and continued through this mission. A small tear beneath the cachet, a tiny pinhole above the cancellation, and some very light wear. Overall fine.
