Michael Collins's exceptional flown 5.5 x 5.5 swatch of Beta cloth featuring the Apollo 11 insignia carried to the moon during the first lunar-landing mission, signed and flight-certified in black felt tip, "Carried to the Moon aboard Apollo XI, July 1969, Michael Collins," and also signed by his crewmates, "Neil Armstrong" and "Buzz Aldrin." Handsomely double-matted and framed beside a handwritten letter of provenance signed by Collins, dated April 2004, in full: "This Apollo XI crew patch was carried to the moon in July 1969 in my personal preference kit and has been in my possession ever since." In fine condition. A superb flown format fully signed by the first lunar landing crew, boasting excellent provenance from the collection of the CMP. An attractively displayed, spectacular piece of space history.
