Having read the accounts by Dave Scott, Al Worden, Jim Irwin, Deke Slayton and Chris Kraft in their respective books as well as what is available on the web, re the Apollo 15 covers and the subsequent fallout, I was wondering if anyone could shed some more light on what also happened to Jack Swigert and his signed stamp blocks.

I assume it was only these stamps as other sources indicate he had taken covers with him on Apollo 13, but I doubt that, as he didn't even have time to get his tax returns done prior to the mission, although I have seen covers with images of the original crew but signed by all three flight crew members dated April 11, 1970.
