    Description

    Apollo 11 Manned Flight Awareness Medal MS69 NGC, One of 100 Presented to Neil Armstrong, Directly from The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. The MFA program was instituted at NASA after Gemini as a method to instill a strong sense of quality and flight safety in its employees and those of its contractors by various motivational methods and awards. This 32mm medal with the text "The Eagle Has Landed/ July 20, 1969" on the obverse above and below an astronaut and the U.S. flag on the lunar surface was part of that emphasis and was minted with flown metal from both the Columbia and the Eagle, as stated on the reverse. Sealed in a numbered archival holder, CAG 1000806-018. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.

    Included with this lot is a color photocopy of the September 15, 1971, letter to Neil Armstrong from the Manager of the MFA Office. It reads: "Forwarded herewith are 100 Apollo 11 medallions struck by the Marshall Space Flight Center to promote craftsmanship of the Apollo/Saturn Team members. They have been distributed to various NASA and contractor personnel." This is one of those medals.

    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.
