Space Cover of the Week, Week 443 (November 19, 2017)

Space Cover 443: Soyuz T-4 to Salyut 6

This week's Space Cover of the Week commemorates the flight of Soyuz T-4 to the Salyut 6 space station. This flight was the fifth and final resident crew of Salyut 6. Soyuz T-4 visited Salyut-6 from March 13, 1981 to May 26, 1981.

The cover shown is a first day cover of Russia Scott #4991-92 issued 10-15-1981 and was autographed by flight engineer, Victor Savinykh. Also shown is signed photo sent per my request.
