Apollo 15 Flown Cover - Mercury 7 Autographs

Apollo 15 Cover Flown to the Lunar Surface

This is one of the infamous Apollo 15 flown covers first confiscated and later released by NASA during the Apollo 15 Covers Scandal. This particular cover is from the Apollo 15 Crew's batch of 298 covers, which travelled to the lunar surface along with 100 covers for German Stamp dealer Hermann Sieger. All 398 covers were un-authorized for flight and when Sieger started to sell his covers it caused a scandal and NASA were forced to remove the Apollo 15 Crew form flight status and confiscated the covers. Only in 1983 did Al Worden successfully sue the government to have the 298 covers returned to the crew.
