Description

Silver certificate signed during Panamanian jungle training including White, Glenn, and twice by Armstrong

Uncommon Series 1957 B one dollar silver certificate signed on the portrait side in red and blue ballpoint by Neil Armstrong, Ed White, Scott Carpenter, John Glenn, James Lovell, and Wally Schirra, and signed again on the reverse in ballpoint by Neil Armstrong and Deke Slayton. Signatures were obtained while the astronauts were participating in jungle training in Panama from June 3-6, 1963, at Albrook Air Force Base. In fine condition, with some light contrast to Armstrong’s and Slayton’s signatures on reverse. Although missions were meant to land in the ocean, NASA took no chances and provided the astronauts with jungle and desert training in case of going off course. A very scarce assemblage of signatures acquired during a very important, and fortunately not called upon, part of their training. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
