The third envelope is from the match arbiter Grandmaster Lothar Schmid addressed to his son and also with first day of issue stamps franked accordingly. Each item is signed with the signatures of Robert Fischer, Boris Spassky and Lother Schmid respectively. A letter of authentication referring to all three items from Lother Schmid is provided.With the signatures of the world champion, Spassky, and his challenger, Fischer, the world champion-to-be, along with the signature of the match arbiter this is undoubtedly one of the most unique of all world championship mementoes.
