It is boldly signed on the verso in block letters: "Michael Collins". Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from Astronaut Central signed in facsimile by Kim Poor stating, in full: "Rare Apollo 11 'bio-garment' patch.

    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.
