DescriptionBuzz Aldrin's "Prix the Best 1994" (with Later Program) and "Annual Icon 2003" Awards, Originally from His Personal Collection. Two awards presented to Aldrin, as follows.

Printed information translated from the French: "The elected members are chosen by a committee whose members represent the personalities of the world of fashion, literature, entertainment, politics and the business world. Originally, this award was created to celebrate beauty and elegance, and over the years it has evolved to become the celebration of elegance as lifestyle and work, both in the field of politics, art, and culture."
Annual Icon Award 2003: An elegant 13" tall sculpture (overall) on a 4" square marble base with an engraved plaque: "Colonel Buzz Aldrin/ Annual ICON Award/ June 7, 2003/ UCLA Center on Aging". From their website: "The ICON Award is presented every year to individuals who have become legends in their fields- medicine, business, philanthropy, advocacy, and entertainment. These individuals have remained active and engaged throughout their lives and serve as role models, showing us all how to make healthy longevity a way of life." Both very fine or better.
