DescriptionNeil Armstrong Signed Outer Space Treaty. A one page 17" x 10.5" document printed on parchment paper with a 6¢ United Nations "World Weather Watch" stamp affixed and tied to the document with a First Day of Issue cancellation dated September 19, 1968. In a blank area above Article 5, Neil Armstrong has boldly signed in blue felt tip. A bit of light crinkling doesn't detract, else fine.
The "Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies" forms the basis for international space law. It was opened for signature in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union on January 27, 1967, and entered into force on October 10, 1967. As of last year, ninety-eight countries are party to the treaty. What better signature to have on this document than the first man to step foot on another heavenly body?
