First edition (1970), containing twenty-four medals in a handsome blue album/ book. Each medal is 39mm in diameter and weighs 0.8 ounces.

The second group of twelve features Manned Flights from Freedom 7 of May 1961 through Apollo 11 of July 1969.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
