    Description

    Apollo 11 Flown Pieces (Two) of Kapton Foil, Each on a Certificate. Two items, as follows:
    (1) A 0.375" x 0.25" piece of "Gold Foil 'Skin' from Apollo 11 Spacecraft 'Columbia'" attached to a 3.5" x 2.5" card explaining the provenance with a facsimile signature of Dick Williamson.
    (2) An odd-shaped, 1" x 0.375" overall, "Reflective Gold Kapton Film From Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia" attached and laminated to a 3.5" x 2.5" sheet explaining the provenance with a facsimile signature of Robert E Miner of North American Rockwell.
    Kapton foil was used to protect the spacecraft from the extreme environment of deep space; this delicate foil played a critical role by reflecting the sun's intense heat off the ship, helping to maintain comfortable temperatures within. Both in excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    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.
