    Description

    Apollo 1: Neil Armstrong's Personally-Owned Lion Brothers Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A 3.5" diameter patch designed by the crew picturing the Command/ Service Module orbiting the earth above the Florida launch point with the moon (the eventual target of the program) in the distance. The Apollo 1 flight was scheduled for a February 21, 1967, liftoff, but tragedy struck on January 27 when all three crewmembers perished in an onboard fire during a pre-launch test. A poignant reminder of America's first space-related tragedy. Excellent. Sealed in a numbered archival holder, CAG 1001738-009. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
