As most of you have seen in the thread below, I just got an unaddressed version of the Numeroff designed cover flown on Pete Knight's Mach 6.7 flight on 10/3/67 (Ellington-Zwisler #102). Now, what is interesting is that on other, addressed versions, Numeroff hand wrote the following:

"10 were carried - signed and authenticated by the pilot
1. Maj. Knight
2. Col. Walt Flint USAF (NASA)
3. Mrs. E. Goddard
4. Harry Gordon
5. Edmund Browne
6. W. J. Numeroff
7. Laura "
8. Douglas (J.N.) Richter
9. Troop 141 BSA (Edwards AFB)
10. Knight (family)"

Now, I am aware of the existence of #'s 4 - 7 and they are all addressed to the recipient. Not sure how the unaddressed cover fits in. Ellington-Zwisler lists 13 flown, so maybe this is one of the extra three. So, time to take a census. If I can account for more than 10, or even account for the 10 listed above, that data will help resolve my question.

So, if any of you own one of these covers (other than #'s 4 - 7), can you please e-mail me at the e-mail link above, and tell me if or to whom your cover is addressed? I will keep your name confidential, just want to get as accurate of an accounting as possible.
