    Description

    Apollo 11 Flown Flag of the State of Illinois Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. A silk 6" x 4" flag that was aboard the first manned lunar landing mission along with the legendary crew of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The design depicts a bald eagle perched on a rock grasping a shield and holding a ribbon in its mouth with the words "State Sovereignty, National Union". Chicago, Illinois, was one of the three American cities chosen for a ticker tape parade the day of the Apollo 11 crew's release from quarantine. Maybe there is a bidder out there that remembers Mayor Richard Daley presenting the crew and the massive parade that day nearly fifty years ago. Excellent, sealed in a numbered archival sleeve. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
