    Patches: Celebrating 50 Years of America in Space Patch Directly from The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A diamond-shaped patch, 5.5" across, designed by Tim Gagnon, merrowed edge with tail. A colorful patch with much symbolism within the design. From Gagnon: "The gold trajectory illustrates that we have left our planet to journey to the stars beginning 50 years ago. The twelve stars on the right side of the launch plume represent the 12 men who walked on the Moon. The thirteen stars on the left when taken with the other twelve represent the 25 US Astronauts who died in the line of duty (including Edward Givens). The constellation Orion represents the navigational tool used during the Apollo program as well as our future goals. The Moon and the red planet Mars illustrate the destination of the Vision for Space Exploration." Excellent. Sealed in a numbered archival holder, CAG 1002097-016. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
