CONRAD'S POSTAL COVER—MEANT TO BE FLOWN.
Envelope measuring approximately 4 x 6 inches with a color crew emblem cachet and Navy wings. Kennedy Space Center postmark of November 14, 1969, the launch date of Apollo 12. Mounted on a Typed Card Signed by CHARLES CONRAD.

CHARLES CONRAD'S provenance card reads: "This Apollo XII crew cover was signed by the entire Apollo XII crew just days before our launch on November 14, 1969. The set of covers were originally planned to be flown on our flight to the moon. However, we collectively agreed not to fly them to avoid favoritism due to multiple requests to fly a variety of covers in our personal preference kits. This cover is from my personal collection. Charles Conrad, Jr., CDR Apollo XII."
