Item 576 - Neil Armstrong Catalog 397 (Dec 2012)                Back To Previous Page

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,224.80


TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, October 8, 1987. Congratulatory letter to an Eagle Scout. In full: “It has just come to my attention that you have attained the rank of Eagle Scout. Congratulations! You can be justifiably proud of this achievement. I believe that you will find it to be one of the most memorable accomplishments of your life. You have been helped along the way by many others in Scouting. Now it is your responsibility to help others, even to a greater extent than before. I’m certain that you will meet this new challenge. Again, congratulations and all good wishes from a fellow Eagle.” Uniform mild toning over text and signature from previous display and a few creases, otherwise fine condition. Scouting played an important role in Armstrong’s early years, and for a while he would send a congratulatory letter to new Eagle Scouts. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
