There's no sig attached, so it's getting stripped off somewhere.
This line in the headers looks to be the culprit:
X-Content-Filtered-By: Mailman/MimeDel 2.1.5

That will strip all attachments, including S/MIME.

My PGP signatures seem to come through just fine, however.

Yes it did.  And it appears that this is the reason:

Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/signed; micalg=pgp-sha1;
	protocol="application/pgp-signature"; boundary="H1spWtNR+x+ondvy"
Content-Disposition: inline

Andrew's is like this:
Content-Type: multipart/signed; boundary=Apple-Mail-1-746495031; micalg=sha1;
	protocol="application/pkcs7-signature"
Mime-Version: 1.0 (Apple Message framework v924)

X-Scanned-By: MIMEDefang 2.52 on 172.17.94.85
X-Content-Filtered-By: Mailman/MimeDel 2.1.5

Notice that his was processed through MIMEDefang twice and then Content Filtered by Mailman. Also, his content type is protocol="application/pkcs7-signature" whereas yours is "application/pgp-signature".

There's also no Content-Disposition: line in Andrew's email headers, so it's possible that absence of that line makes a difference as well.

By default, it appears that Mailman does not do content filtering. It also has pass rules (if filtering is enabled) for multipart/mixed, multipart/alternative and text/plain. So, it's possible that MIMEDefang is the culprit instead.
