    Description

    Gemini 8: Aviation Week Plaque of Gemini 8 Inspecting Agena Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty with a Photo Certificate. 12.75" x 15.75", a McGraw-Hill Publication, April 4, 1966. The magazine edition features a story entitled, "Gemini 8 Inspects Agena at 45 ft. Prior to First Docking in Space". The Gemini 8 mission was commanded by Neil Armstrong in what would be his first flight into space. The Gemini 8 was meant to dock with the Agena, but problems arose shortly after docking and the crew had to make an emergency abort of the mission. Armstrong's quick thinking and calm demeanor during the un-docking and re-entry was later praised by his pilot David Scott. Light scratching and minor wear throughout, else fine. This lot will include an encapsulated CAG Photo Certificate with a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
