FLOWN POSTAL COVER SIGNED BY 13 COSMONAUTS ABOARD THE MIR SPACE STATION
Incredibly rare collection of thirteen signatures from the crewmembers of the MIR-20 MIR-21 STS-76 and MIR-22 space missions all signed aboard the MIR Space Station on a flown Space Museum envelope including: Y. GIDZENKO S. AYDEYEV T. REITER Y. ONUFRIENKO Y. USACHOV K. CHILTON R. SEARFOSS R. SEGA L. GODWIN SHANNON LUCID V. KORSUN A. KALERI and CLAUDIE ANDRE-DESHAYS. The envelope itself was postmarked onboard the Space Station on the docking day of Soyuz TM-23 on Feb. 23 1996 and postmarked again prior to the undocking of Soyuz TM-23 on Sept. 2 1996 which brought the envelope back to Earth. The reverse bears a signed handstamp by MIR-21 cosmonaut YURI USACHOV whom was present for the signing and thus attests to the envelope’s authenticity. The bottom-left corner of the reverse also bears a handwritten serial number "N-2" on the bottom-left corner. Only 13 examples of this envelope including those in cosmonauts’ possessions are reported to exist. Fine condition and highly collectible! Sold with an unused STS-76 sticker and an unused MIR 97 sticker.
