    Apollo 11 Lunar Module Flown and Surface-Used Camera Film Leader Strip, Signed and Certified by Richard Underwood, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A 5" x 3" index card with a 2.75" x 0.25" strip of film attached by tape. The text reads "Film From The Moon/ This Is To Certify That The Attached Film Was Carried/ Onboard Apollo 11 On Its Historic Flight To The Moon,/ July 16-24, 1969, And Was Carried To The Surface Of The/ Moon By Astronauts Armstrong And Aldrin In The Lunar/ Module 'Eagle' On July 20-21, 1969." Signed in blue ink by Richard W. Underwood as NASA's Supervisory Aerospace Technologist. This is, by far, the largest segment of Richard Underwood-certified Apollo 11 LM flown film we have offered, it coming from Neil Armstrong who took most of the EVA photos. A very desirable relic. For many years this was on loan from the Armstrong family to the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio; their tiny penciled catalog number is found on the reverse. Lightly toned, very fine. Sealed in a numbered archival sleeve, CAG 1002096-017. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
