    Neil Armstrong Signed Apollo 11 Lunar Plaque Replica from the 1969 Nixon Presidential State Dinner, Signed for a Member of His Family Who Was in Attendance. A 7.5" x 5.5" replica of the famous plaque left on the surface of the moon attached to the Lunar Module Eagle bearing the iconic phrase: "We came in peace for all mankind." This one has the added engraving at the bottom: "President's Dinner Honoring Apollo 11 Astronauts/ August 13, 1969" as given to the attendees of that dinner. Housed in its original folder with Apollo 11 insignia on front and boldly signed to the left of the plaque that night in black felt tip: "Neil Armstrong". The day after their release from quarantine, the crew of Apollo 11 was feted with ticker tape parades in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. That evening, they attended this State Dinner with President Nixon and numerous congressmen, governors, and ambassadors from around the world, as well as their fellow astronauts, where they were presented Presidential Medals of Freedom. A rare and desirable item, excellent for display. Light staining on front cover, excellent inside.

    This lot will be accompanied by a signed COA from Neil Armstrong's brother, Dean.
