    Description

    Apollo 11 Flown American Flag on a Signed Presentation Certificate, Originally Presented by Buzz Aldrin to a Family Member, in Framed Display. A 5.75" x 4" cloth U.S. flag mounted to a 9.5" x 11.5" (sight size) 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". Signed around the printed mission insignia: "Neil Armstrong" (completely faded but still visible enough to know it's authentic), "Michael Collins" (autopen), 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." Matted and framed to an overall 12.5" x 15.5". This was presented after the mission by Aldrin to one of his in-laws. Decades of hanging on a wall seriously affected the Armstrong signature. Still, a rare and very desirable piece of Space history. Glue bleedthrough on each corner of the flag as is usually seen, otherwise very fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
