There could have been some
lack of information about the
actual planned date for the
commissioning of the

Nashville
because Beck’s log
shows “not sent” which
means that he probably didn’t
have time to produce the
covers and send them.  Note
that #842 was postmarked in
May of 1970.


 



Beck’s Cover Log shows #843 was originally scheduled for USS Nashville LPD-13, commissioning on 14 February 1970.
 

Beck’s log book does not show a
 quantity for cover 843, but given the
covers near that series, the
approximate quantity is about 350
covers.


Link to Beck’s Cover Log

Also, in Beck’s Cover Log, #843 is
crossed out and “Nimitz CVAN 68” is
written in.  The final 843 cover was
for the Nimitz class aircraft carrier
USS Eisenhower CVAN-69 Keel
laying on
August 15, 1970.  At the
time (early 1970) the actual name of
CVAN-69 wasn’t even known.  The
events and results make sense with
the timing.

850 USS Reasoner DE-1063 Planned for Reasoner
but never serviced for
original event.
 

Number produced: Beck's log
 shows "not sent"

 

 

The above cover submitted by Paul
 Huber of Fairwinds was used for the
decommission of the Reasoner in
1993.  This cover is probably a one-
of-a-kind sent by the collector that
had the 20+ year old Unserviced
envelope.
851 USS Peleliu LHA-5 Not serviced

Number produced: 491

The contract to build USS
 Peleliu was given in 1970. 
The KL was in 1976. (The
Peleliu was originally named
USS Da Nang).


We are researching the
details of a possible change
of contract or name that
made the 851 cover obsolete.
It was never serviced or
returned.

Scan not available.
No examples observed.

Winick's Beck Handbook lists #851
as USS Peleliu.

Another mystery was solved
 when this cover was
identified.  There are many
Beck CREW covers that
haven't been found yet.  We
know From Mr. Beck that he
sent the printed envelopes
without the cachet number
(CREW) to the ships for
space events.  What
happened to some of them is
a mystery.  Another mystery
recently solved was for 880
Ticonderoga.

ADDED June 2008

This scan was sent to us by Dr. Ross
Smith.  Prior to seeing this scan,
it wasn't verified that a CREW cover
 existed for this ship for Apollo 14.
As Dr. Smith said,
it might not be a pretty cover
but I am VERY happy to have found it.

The correct cancel for this
 event is a machine cancel. 

 

The hand cancel shown here
is a fake.

There is a VERY informative
 article in the August edition
of  the USCS Log by long-
time USCS Member Rich
Hoffner. 


Rich compiled and presented
information on Fake and
Fraudulent Naval Covers. 
The cover shown at bottom-
right is a sample of a Fake
cancel on a genuine Beck
cachet.


Somehow a dealer/collector
obtained unserviced
envelopes from Mr. Beck and
applied the fake cancel. That
person was expelled from the
USCS for his actions.

 




Fake Cancel on Genuine Beck Cachet.
  See August 2008 USCS Log for more
information.  Join USCS

This is the only Beck cover that we have
 observed a FAKE cancel.  There are
likely others.

If you have any further information,
please contact us.

Again, thanks goes to USCS Member
Rich Hoffner for researching and
reporting this information.

For years, we have kept our
eyes out for an example or
scan of this cover.  It is one
of the few covers that we
couldn't find but believed it
had to exist.  Don Hensley a
non-collector found our Web
site while researching his
covers.  He wrote us saying
that his uncle was a postal
clerk on the Ticonderoga
during the Apollo 16 flight and
was on board during the
recovery.  His uncle, now
deceased, apparently got a
hold of some or most of the
CREW (printed cachets
without the usual Beck
number) covers that Beck
sent for this event.  Don sent
us scans of over a dozen
different 880 CREW covers
from the Ticonderoga with the
HAND CANCEL. 

CREW cover.  Beck 880 cachet
with out printed number is a crew cover.

880 Unserviced N/A Apollo 16 The Navy imposed a two
 cover per collector limit on
space flights.  If a collector
sent more than two envelopes
the Navy returned the covers
to the collector in a separate
envelope.  This explains why
we see some space covers
with stamps and not serviced.

Beck's printing log does not
indicate a quantity for Apollo
16. He wrote a note in the log
saying "Missed Counts on
these"

He must have printed an
excess number of covers for
a special request or dealer
because of the numerous
covers postmarked in various
cities.

Thanks goes to Steve Durst
for sending us this cover to
put on the site.


This Apollo 16 Beck cover postmarked at
Titusville, FL on the recovery date is one
of several different cities serviced by
collectors and dealers. 

These covers were printed by Mr. Beck
and sent to various collectors and
dealers upon request.  The collectors
and dealers sent the printed covers to
various cities for postmarking.  This
specific cover is addressed to George
Goldey, a very well-known space cover
dealer.

 This CREW cover is Beck cachet 886. 
We designate it as 886 because  this is
the first usage of the printed cachet. 
Only 886 and 887 have this cachet
design for the Atlantic Recovery Force. 
We have not seen any postmarks on 886
or 887 other than Norfolk, VA.  If you
have one of these covers with a
postmark other than Norfolk, please send
us a scan.

We do know that most
cancels for this flight were
applied in Hawaii.  Most
cancels applied were the
wavy line cancel. 

VERY few covers have the
USS New Orleans cancel with
the solid lines.  It is not known
if the solid line cancels were
applied in Hawaii or actually
on board the ship. 

It is likely that the solid line
cancel WAS on board the
ship.  In any case, the SOLID
line cancel at right is the
cancel seldom seen.


 

Only a few covers with the solid line cancellation on a numbered Beck cachet 896 observed by this collector.

Scan courtesy of Dr. Ross Smith

This is NOT a CREW cover because it does have the Beck printed cachet number.


This is an error cover missing the RED color.  Note that the Beck number B896 was printed in RED.  Colors are not correct due to photo/scan.
