"...received by the Apollo 11 crew and carried aboard the Apollo 11 spacecraft during the mission."

    Apollo 11 Flown 14K Gold Mezuzah Pendant with Crew-Signed Letter of Provenance. A 0.25" x 1" x 0.125" gold mezuzah with a Star of David on the front. This was taken along on mankind's first moonlanding mission as confirmed by the accompanying one page letter on NASA letterhead; it reads, in full: "Dear Miss Feder. This letter is to confirm the fact that your Mazoza [sic] was received by the Apollo 11 crew and carried onboard the Apollo 11 spacecraft during the mission. With best wishes..." Signed at close: "Neil Armstrong", "Buzz Aldrin", and "M Collins". This originally belonged to a Miss Pearl Feder; she explains its origins in an e-mail with the original purchaser: "Early in 1969 I travelled to Cape Canaveral (Kennedy> frequently to visit with friends, at which time I met several of the astronauts. My very dear friend knew all of them and she and Jim Lovell decided to do something nice for me for my birthday in July. The thought came to them to send a Mezuzah on the Apollo 11 mission and then to return it to me with a letter confirming this fact. To the best of my knowledge, Jim Lovell asked Buzz Aldrin to take this on the Mission, which he did, and the letter and the Mezuzah were given to me by Jim and my girlfriend after the Mission returned to earth." Totally unique in our experience and should appeal to not only Space collectors but those also of important Judaica- a Jewish religious symbol that flew to the moon on Apollo 11! Fine.
