Lot 9447: Rare Apollo 17 insurance cover with a cachet of the mission insignia, 6.5 x 3.5, signed in black felt tip by Gene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt, and Ron Evans, and signed and certified on the reverse by Evans, "This cover was signed prior to launch in Dec 1972, Ron Evans, Apollo 17 CMP." In fine condition. Few covers for the Apollo 17 mission exist as the crew wanted to avoid any philatelic controversy spurred by the Apollo 15 Sieger incident, and they are rarely found in fully signed examples certified by an astronaut as signed before the mission.
