the US Navy.  This corresponds to Beck cachet number 622.  All examples
of the USS Boxer cancels on cachet 622 have the machine cancel.  We have
not observed any Boxer hand cancels on a printed Beck cover for this space
flight.  If you have one please send us a scan.

USS Boxer LPH-4

FEB 26/PM/1966

Number produced:

Scan courtesy of Dr Ross Smith

Added Oct 2012
Dr Smith was the successful bidder on this possibly unique Apollo cover. 
The cover is addressed to W R Skelley, Jr.

Est Value $85.00-100

Over the past several years, we have seen many Beck CREW covers
addressed to W R Skelley, Jr.

He was a PIO or Postal Clerk during the 1960's space recoveries. 
He managed to get a hold of a lot of the Beck CREW covers and
addressed them to himself. 

This means he likely had access to some of the covers sent to the US Navy for the
recovery ships by Mr. Beck.

UPDATE:  See the article published by Dr Ross Smith.

Prime Recovery Ship The above cover is probably one-of-a-kind.

USS Boxer was suppose to be the prime recovery ship.

Added 12/2009

After all these years of searching for Beck covers we are VERY surprised
to see a GTA-8 Beck cover from the USS Leonard F Mason other than B630.
 

Note the address is hand written.  Our guess, (only a guess) is that a Navy
Postal Clerk got a hold of the printed  covers sent by Beck and addressed this
 to a family member. This is probably one  of a kind! 
This is the only B629 observed that is other than the USS Cochrane.

USS Boxer was suppose to be the prime recovery ship but the USS Leonard F Mason
DD-852picked up the astronauts after an in-flight change of plans due to an emergency.


This is a very elusive cover and has always commandeda premium price.
 

In July 2017, this cover with the usual US Navy GT-8 RS cachet sold on eBay
for $152.50 along with a second cover with US Navy cachet and cancel of Boxer.

Boxer was scheduled to be the prime recovery ship but due to technical problems,
Mason picked up the astronauts.  See #630.

Beck Boxer cover sells for a premium.  Est. $20-25. 

CREW covers shown use the Beck design but were not printed by Beck. 

These covers are very hard to find and were likely printed on the board the ship
USS Boxer.  Est. Value $20-30 ea.

The Silver and Gold covers sold on eBay for $22.50 each in Feb. 2006.

Scan courtesy of Dr. Ross J. Smith.

Any differences in the colors of the Beck cachets for GT-8 Atlantic cachets is due to
the variations in scans.  There isn't a color variety.

Watch for same cachet number with hand cancel. 
Hand cancels with ship name at bottom of dial as shown below do exist.
The hand cancel has NOT been reported on Beck printed cachets
with or without numbers.

Previously Unlisted. Added Oct. 2008

Dr. Smith was the lucky bidder that had a sharp eye and noticed that this
Boxer cover was on Beck cachet 640.

Purchased in 2008 along with the RS cachet of Mason for total of $61

on the USS Epperson, and applied the Honolulu machine cancel. 

This is only speculation.  No one knows for sure.
