Lot 9269: Apollo 11 'Type 3' insurance cover with a cachet of the mission insignia, bearing a July 16, 1969, Kennedy Space Center cancellation, signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. In very fine condition. Accompanied by a printed informational sheet stating the cover comes from the Buzz Aldrin Family collection. Produced and signed just prior to space missions in order to provide financial security for astronauts' families in case of disaster, insurance covers are the ultimate space-related philatelic item, and one of the most sought-after formats for astronaut autographs.
