    Apollo 11 moon-flown U.S. flag

    Apollo 11 Flown American Flag on a Crew-Signed Presentation Certificate, Framed. A 5.75" x 3.75" silk U.S. flag mounted to a 10" x 12" color certificate printed with the words: "This Flag Traveled to the Moon with Apollo 11, the First Manned Lunar Landing, July 20, 1969/ APOLLO 11/ July 16-24, 1969/ Armstrong - Collins - Aldrin". Printed on the lower area is the Apollo 11 mission insignia above the crew's signatures: "Neil Armstrong", "M Collins", and "Buzz Aldrin". At the very bottom are printed the immortal words Armstrong spoke as he stepped onto the moon's surface: "One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." This desirable and historic presentation has been framed to an overall size of 13.25" x 16.25". On the back of the frame is a period typed label: "Given to P. M. Sturtevant/ NASA Special Asst. Gemini". Excellent condition. The flag is bright and does not exhibit any of the often-seen bleedthrough from the glue. The certificate is clean and the signatures are bold with no inscriptions. A virtually unimprovable display example of a flag flown on this legendary mission. From the personal collection of Gemini Program Office special assistant and longtime NASA employee, Paul M. Sturtevant.

    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.
