APOLLO 11: INSURANCE COVER

RARE TYPE 2 CREW-SIGNED INSURANCE COVER.
Apollo 11 Life Insurance Cover measuring approximately 4 x 6 inches. Blue Dow-Unicover cachet having images of the Apollo 11 crew members and an illustration titled "Apollo XI, The First Step..." with the additional title of: "First Manned Lunar Landing." Kennedy Space Center (KSC) postmark of 16 July 1969, the launch date for Apollo 11.

SIGNED by NEIL ARMSTRONG, MICHAEL COLLINS, and BUZZ ALDRIN prior to their Apollo 11 flight.

This cover is one of three different designs used by the Apollo 11 crew to serve as a form of "life insurance" for their families. If a catastrophic event occurred during the mission, preventing Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin's safe return, this cover could have been used by family members to provide financial support. This design as well as the Apollo 11 emblem and lunar surface exploration designs were evenly distributed to the families after they were postmarked at the Kennedy Space Center on July 16 or Houston, Texas on July 20, 1969.
