    Description

    A vintage handwritten letter by Neil Armstrong to fellow astronaut Charles "Pete" Conrad, referring to a mission patch!

    Neil Armstrong Autograph Letter Signed "Neil". Great association ALS, one page, 5" x 3", [n.p., n.d.], to Pete Conrad regarding an Apollo XII mission patch and mentioning astronauts Deke Slayton. In full: "PETE: NORM SHYKEN SAYS DEKE WAS OUT OF TOWN WHEN HE WAS IN HOUSTON. FRED SPOSS WAS TO FORWARD PATCH PHOTO TO DEKE BUT DEKE WILL GET IT COLD. NEIL." Handwritten letters by Armstrong are extremely scarce; one written to a fellow Moonwalker and mentioning one of the first astronauts as well as a mission patch is exceptionally desirable. Accompanied by an original Apollo XII mission patch. Both items in fine condition. We have previously sold an Armstrong ALS in our September 2007 auction for $6572.00!
