    Three world aeronautic records set by Apollo 11

    Apollo 11 National Aeronautic Association Certificates of Record (Three) Originally from the Personal Collection of Buzz Aldrin. Each of these three original 12" x 15" heavyweight documents reads as follows: "National Aeronautic Association Representing in the United States of America The Federation Aeronautique Internationale awards this Certificate of Record to...
    (1) Neil A. Armstrong & Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. for Class K-3 Greatest Mass Lifted into Lunar Orbit from the Surface of the Moon Spacecraft Apollo 11 and Lunar Module 'Eagle' 21 July 1969 (Mission 16-24 July 1969) 5,928.6 pounds"
    (2) Neil A. Armstrong & Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. for Class K-3 Duration of Stay on the Lunar Surface Spacecraft Apollo 11 and Lunar Module 'Eagle' 20-21 July 1969 (Mission 16-24 July 1969) 21 Hrs. 36 Mins. 21 Secs."
    (3) Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. for Class K-3 Duration of Stay Inside the Spacecraft on the Surface of the Moon Spacecraft Apollo 11 and Lunar Module 'Eagle' 20-21 July 1969 (Mission 16-24 July 1969) 19 Hrs. 49 Mins. 28 Secs."
    Each document bears the gold seal of the NAA, founded in 1922, and is signed by President Frederick B. Lee and a member of the Contest and Record Board. A large folder with Aldrin's name in calligraphy on the front beneath the NAA seal is included. Rarely offered and extremely desirable. Two of the certificates have a tiny nick at the right edge which would easily be hidden in a frame, otherwise excellent.
