This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+

Description

Flown .25 x .25 swatch of film carried to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Eagle during the historic Apollo 11 mission. The swatch is affixed to a 7.5 x 9.5 certificate of authenticity signed in ballpoint by Buzz Aldrin and Richard W. Underwood, Supervisory Aerospace Technologist at the Johnson Space Center. The certificate details the chronology of the film from after liftoff until its return on board the CSM Columbia, stating that "107 photographs were taken on this film roll while on the surface of the moon," and features facsimile signatures of the full crew. Matted and framed to an overall size of 14.25 x 17.25. In fine condition. Underwood was responsible for developing the Apollo photographs—in fact, he was the first person to view every photograph from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, and the first 23 space shuttle missions.
