Apollo 12 Flown Cover
Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15
Crew-Signed Limited Edition Apollo 12 Cover Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Originally from the Family Collection of Apollo 12 Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon, Signed and Certified
This is one of the little-known philatelic-related stories of the Apollo missions. Richard Gordon prepared eighty-seven mission insignia covers (identical to the Type I insurance covers) to take on the flight with him but they were left behind. As a personal favor to Apollo 15 back-up Commander Gordon, Jim Irwin volunteered to carry them to the moon on Apollo 15. Thus, they finally did make it to the moon and back and are a treasured rarity to the few lucky collectors who own one.
