    Description

    Boy Scouts: 1969 Boy Scouts of America 7th National Jamboree Bronze Medal, MS63 NGC, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. We know for certain that Armstrong missed attending this Jamboree in person as the dates were July 16-22, 1969. He was otherwise engaged but certainly there in spirit; he did send the 30,000+ scouts attending a shoutout during his voyage to the moon. A handsome 40mm bronze memento saved by Armstrong among his prized Scouting souvenirs. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.

    From the Apollo 11 voice transcript, Armstrong speaks to the CapCom (Charlie Duke): "And Charlie, I'd like to say hello to all my fellow scouts and scouters at Farragut State Park in Idaho having a National Jamboree there this week; and Apollo 11 would like to send them best wishes." Charlie Duke answers: "Thank you, Apollo 11. I'm sure that, if they didn't hear that, they'll get the word through the news, surely appreciate that."
