    Description

    Apollo 11 Original NASA Limited Edition Medals (Two). Both very limited, given only to important program insiders, as follows.
    Lunar Landing: A flat 64mm diameter stainless steel medallion. On the obverse is the Apollo Program logo and the text: "Lunar Landing/ Apollo/ NASA/ July 1969". On the reverse are the facsimile signatures of the crew and the statement: "The Die for this Medallion was Carried to the Moon and Back by the Crew of Apollo 11 in 1969." There were reportedly only 1000 of these minted for top-level NASA personnel, quite rare. Only the third example Heritage has offered. Light wear.
    NASA/SCO Launch Team: A 38mm sterling silver medal by the Franklin Mint in an acrylic display on a wooden stand. The obverse depicts Armstrong making that first step and quotes the words he said (with "a man"); the reverse shows the plaque left on the moon with an olive branch. The presentation plate reads: "Presented to C. D. Clary/ Member NASA-SCO Launch Team July 16, 1969". Light toning on medal, scratches on acrylic.
    Charles D. "Chuck" Clary was a long time NASA employee involved heavily in preparation for this mission.
