Item 9160 - Apollo 11 Crew-Signed Flown Flag Presentation Catalog 518 (Nov 2017)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $50,000.00 +
Sold Price: $120,693.13 (includes buyer's premium)


Extraordinary flown American flag carried on the Apollo 11 mission, 6 x 4, affixed to its original 10 x 12 mount, signed on the mount in black felt tip by the entire crew, "Neil Armstrong," "Buzz Aldrin," and "M. Collins." The flag has been additionally signed and flight-certified in black felt tip by Aldrin, "Flown on Apollo XI, Buzz Aldrin." The mount features the Apollo 11 mission insignia and reads: "This flag traveled to the moon with Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing, July 20, 1969, Apollo 11, July 16-24, 1969, Armstrong - Collins - Aldrin." Armstrong's iconic words are also printed along the bottom: "One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." In fine condition, with subtle creasing to the right edge of the mount, and tiny dots of adhesive to reverse corners. Accompanied by an image of Aldrin posing with this piece. Of the few fully signed Apollo 11 flown flag presentations we have encountered, this is the only example to boast the additional inscription by Aldrin on the flag itself. Standalone crew-signed Apollo 11 items and flown American flags are both among the most sought-after space collectibles; featuring these formats in combination, this is an absolutely remarkable piece.
