Item 474 - Apollo 11 Catalog 475 (May 2016)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $10,000.00
Sold Price: $49,003.68 (includes buyer's premium)


Exceptional flown American flag carried on board the Apollo 11 mission, 5.75 x 3.75, affixed to a 9.75 x 12 presentation certificate signed in black felt tip by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The certificate reads, “This flag traveled to the moon with Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing, July 20, 1969,” and features a color image of the mission insignia. In fine condition. Accompanied by a small metal replica of the lunar plaque.

This flown flag was awarded to Frank Parmenter, who worked for NACA/NASA between 1941 and 1978, first at Langley as an aircraft modeler and then at Johnson Space Center in the planning office. He was inducted into the Model Aviation Hall of Fame and the National Free Flight Society Hall of Fame in 1998. Crew signed Apollo 11 items and flown American flags are both among the most sought-after space collectibles; featuring both of these in combination and remaining in exemplary condition, this is an absolutely remarkable piece. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
