.

The cover shown here has the Beck B515 printed on the BACK of the cover.

The Project Gemini cachet was applied to the front of the cover
before it was
sent to Mr. Beck.  Beck printed his cachet on the back of the envelope and
then sent the envelope to the US Navy for postmarking. 

Other examples are seen for B561 and B562.  Scroll down on this page to see it.

These crew covers are very rare covers.  The autographed cover
with Grissom's and Young's autograph is from the collection of Steve Durst. 


Another example-sold for only $32 in 2010

 

Still another example Dr Smith noted on eBay in March 2011.  Note that the
handwriting on the two covers above are same and same last name.  Someone on
the ship got their hands on a couple of the CREW covers and sent them to
family.  This cover being offered in March 2011 with an asking price of 180 Euros
or about $250.

Most of the CREW covers are forever lost and either destroyed or sitting in
some box of old navy papers that will never be seen again by collectors. That
is why these CREW covers are so RARE.

Note the small maroon, red, blue or black rubber stamp that was applied to
collector's envelopes
after the flight was over. 
Collectors wishing to have this rubber stamp applied to covers,
sent their covers with SASE to Mr. Beck.  Mr. Beck applied the rubber
stamp and returned the covers to the collectors using their SASE. Keep in
mind that not very many covers have this added rubber stamp. 
Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp to any covers the collector sent in,
not just CREW covers.

Mr. Beck also sold sets of the rubber stamps to dealers to the dealers
could apply and rubber stamp as they desired. There was a set of 10
rubber stamps offered on eBay a couple of years ago and were sold
to a collector in Europe for about $200.

Ship's cachet on reverse in RED

The USS Harold J Ellison covers for Gemini 3 is a very interesting series of covers.

Dr. Ross J Smith has studied this series and has provided additional information.

All Beck covers observed for USS Harold J Ellison for Gemini 3
event also have the ship's rubber stamp cachet on the reverse of each
cover in RED.  The ship's cachet (on the reverse) has not been observed
in any color on a Beck cover other than red. 

However, on covers with the Navy rubber stamp cachet (on the front),
the ship's cachet can appear on the reverse in colors other than red.

Brown/Gold Cancel.
Ship's cachet on reverse in RED

Updated Feb 2011.  Another B525 with the Brown/Gold cancel was found by Dr Smith.

A B525 with the Brown/Gold cancel was found by Dr Smith.

The Brown/Gold cancel has now been observed on two Beck Covers. 
Until February 2011 we thought the cover shown in our listing for B525 Brown/Gold might be a
unique cover.  Now we know there are at least two!

Note the pencil writing in the address area. #140. One speculation is that this refers to
US Navy Task Force #140.  If that is correct, then this cover might have been
processed for a crew member.

Also review this scan below.  Click on it to enlarge it.  Note the color of the
cachet used on the Navy cachet.  It is the same color as the cancel used on
the Beck cover.  The cover below with the Navy Brown/Gold cachet has
the ship's cachet in Blue on the reverse.  The Beck cover has the ship's
cachet in Red on the reverse.

Another example.  Has the round RS. Scan courtesy of Larry Johnson

Note the small maroon, red, blue or black rubber stamp that was applied to
collector's envelopes
after the flight was over. 

Collectors wishing to have this rubber stamp applied to covers, sent their covers with
 SASE to Mr. Beck.  Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp and returned the covers to the
collectors using their SASE. Keep in mind that not very many covers have this added
rubber stamp. 

Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp to any covers the collector sent in,
not just CREW covers.

Mr. Beck also sold sets of the rubber stamps to dealers so the dealers could apply and
 rubber stamp as they desired.

Note the small maroon, red, blue or black rubber stamp that was applied to
collector's envelopes
after the flight was over. 

Collectors wishing to have this rubber stamp applied to covers, sent their covers with
 SASE to Mr. Beck.  Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp and returned the covers to the
collectors using their SASE. Keep in mind that not very many covers have this added
rubber stamp. 

Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp to any covers the collector sent in,
not just CREW covers.

Mr. Beck also sold sets of the rubber stamps to dealers so the dealers could apply and
 rubber stamp as they desired.

Scan courtesy of Steve Durst

This very rare cover is in the collection of Steve Durst.

Most of these covers are forever lost and either destroyed or sitting in
some box of old navy papers that will never be seen again by collectors.
That is why these CREW covers are so RARE.

Est Value $75-100

Beck's cover log shows that 473 covers were printed for B540.
For each of the space issues, Mr. Beck sent about 25 printed
envelopes to the Navy. 


These did not have the "B" number on the cover as shown on the right. 
The 25 covers were a gift from Mr. Beck to the ship's Captain and
crew for handling the batch of collector's covers.  That is why it
 is called a CREW cover. Most of the CREW covers were given to
senior crew members or VIPs on the ship. 

These people were not cover collectors
and to them, the cover was just a memento. 


Scan courtesy of Eddie Bizub from
the collection of David Ball.

This date is actually the date for Gemini 5 recovery. 

For some reason, the GT-4 covers were held over and postmarked on GT-5.

Also see Beck B561 for the GT-5 cachet and USS Champlain cancel.



Prime Recovery Ship. GT-4 Cachet with GT-5 cancellation and date


Unusual Beck on brown envelope. This cover collector sent Mr. Beck a
brown colored envelope.  This is very unusual because most collectors preferred
a high quality white or cotton bond envelope.  Seeing a brown one is very unusual
and this may be one of a kind for the number 543.  This cover was sold on eBay
by dealer Karl Hass.  Selling price was $22.05 in May 2006.

The very interesting cover shown here has the Beck cachet  printed on the
BACK of the cover.

The Project Gemini cachet was applied to the front of the cover
before it was sent to Mr. Beck.  Beck printed his three color cachet on the
reverse of the envelope and then sent the envelope to the US Navy for
postmarking. 

Other examples of similar covers for GT-5 see B562. and B515.

cachet is unknown.

 


Scan courtesy of Larry Johnson

Note the small maroon, red, blue or black rubber stamp that was applied to
collector's envelopes
after the flight was over. 
Collectors wishing to have this rubber stamp applied to covers,
sent their covers with SASE to Mr. Beck.  Mr. Beck applied the rubber
stamp and returned the covers to the collectors using their SASE. Keep in
mind that not very many covers have this added rubber stamp. 
Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp to any covers the collector sent in,
not just CREW covers.

Mr. Beck also sold sets of the rubber stamps to dealers so the dealers
could apply and rubber stamp as they desired. There was a set of 10
rubber stamps offered on eBay a couple of years ago and were sold
to a collector in Europe for about $200.

The cover shown below is not a Beck cover. 
For example only.

The Cover Above is NOT a BECK cover.  However, the small round cachet was
applied by Beck.  This answers the question if Beck serviced
only his own covers with the small round cachet. He also sold sets of
the rubber stamps.
