A magnificent large framed piece featuring the signatures of all 3 Apollo 17 Crew Signed Crew members, Gene Cernan, Ron Evans and Harrison Schmitt on an Apollo 17 Emblem Cover, (cancelled on December 7th the date of the launch of the Apollo 17 Mission)

This cover is the closest thing to an official Apollo 17 Crew Signed 'Insurance' Cover, as it came originally from Ron Evans collection so may have been one of the few covers that was signed by all three crew members before the mission, other Apollo 17 covers from Cernan's collection were not signed by Harrison Schmitt until 20 years later when Cernan asked Schmitt to complete his signature and had the covers postmarked on the 20th of the splashdown on Dec 19th 1992

In subsequent years, a number of Apollo 17 covers were bought by a dealer in the USA who then stamped them with a rubber stamp in large black letters stating 'INSURANCE COVER no...' and made out that these were official insurance covers and even supplied a Cernan signed COA. However Gene Cernan himself stated on the collectSpace website that he wanted to distance himself from that COA and was more comfortable using the term 'Anniversary Cover' as the covers had not been postmarked or signed by Schmitt before the mission.

So what makes this cover more desirable than the supposed 'insurance covers' (some of which have sold for as much as $5,920 at auction) is that this one is still mint and pure without the ugly and misleading rubber stamp stating 'INSURANCE COVER no...'.

The cover has been framed below a 23x8 inch panoramic photo of the Split Rock at Station 6 also known as Tracy's Rock after Cernan's daughter.

The frame is supplied with UV protective Acrylic glass and uses Acid free mounts. Also contained in the frame are two AB Emblems 4 inch patches.

The overall framed size is approx 27" x 17.5"

Comes with a Moonpans COA
