    Description

    Ex. Thomas O. Paine

    Apollo 11 Crew-Signed "Apollo Achievement Award" Presented to NASA's Third Administrator Thomas O. Paine, with Zarelli LOA. A handsome 14" x 11" certificate presented to the head of NASA at the time of the Apollo 11 mission and signed in felt tips by the crew at bottom: "Neil Armstrong", " M Collins", and " Buzz Aldrin". The text reads: "In appreciation of dedicated service to the nation as a member of the team which has advanced the nation's capabilities in aeronautics and space and demonstrated them in many outstanding accomplishments culminating in Apollo 11's successful achievement of man's first landing on the moon, July 20, 1969." The certificate, with gilt embellishments and a gold NASA seal, is mounted on a board. Included with this lot is a Letter of Authenticity from Steve Zarelli #191011-2190. Toning around the edges that would mat out; the Armstrong and Collins signatures are a bit faded as is often the case. Still, an important and historic piece, perfect for display. Fine.
