Some Apollo Covers Were Postmarked in Hawaii

Due to the increasing interest in the Apollo Space Program and for efficiency, collector's covers sent to the Navy for the prime recovery ship for Apollo 16, 17, and Skylab flights were postmarked in Hawaii.  With a few exceptions the post office aboard the prime recovery ships was closed on the day of the recovery.

Starting with Apollo 16, the US Navy postmarked the covers sent by collectors and dealers (including Beck) in Hawaii.  The covers Mr. Beck and collector's sent to the Navy for postmarking on the PRIME RECOVERY ships actually did NOT go to the Prime Recovery Ship.


Apollo 16-Beck covers 880, 881 USS Ticonderoga.
The hand cancel for USS Ticonderoga for Beck covers and other covers sent to the Navy for this flight were postmarked in Hawaii.

The post office on board the Ticonderoga was closed on the recovery day to the public.  There have been some covers observed with the machine cancel on the recovery day.  This collector is not aware of any Beck covers with the machine cancel for April 27, 1972.
