The above cover just sold on eBay for $462.55! While rare Gemini recovery helicopter covers are certainly not unknown. Why the amazingly high price for this one? Is it just a matter of two bidders wanting the same cover or am I missing something?

Wow! Ross, I don't see anything out of the ordinary that would drive this cover up to $400+ either. Most of these kind of helo carried recovery covers sell for under $100.

Ross, I agree with Dennis. Looks like an ordinary, nothing special, helo recovery cover for Gemini 12. Don't see anything to merit the exorbitant price for this primary recovery ship, helo recovery cover of the Gemini 12 crew. Now, if you could get the Gemini 12 astronauts Jim Lovell and Buzz Aldrin to sign it....
