Neil Armstrong's dinner menu from the Omega Astronaut Appreciation Dinner

Neil Armstrong's exceedingly rare menu from the "Astronaut Appreciation Dinner" sponsored by Omega and held at the Hotel Warwick in Houston, Texas, on November 25, 1969, measuring 15.5 x 10 open, at which special edition gold Apollo XI commemorative Omega Speedmaster watches were presented to the astronauts active at the time; three were also posthumously awarded to the families of the Apollo 1 crew. The front cover features the Omega logo and an illustration of the Saturn V launch vehicle. The menu lists the honored guests on the back cover, and the dinner menu inside—Filet of Red Snapper Marguery Under Glass, Green Turtle Soup, Hunt Room Salad, Filet de Boeuf Wellington, Bouquetiere de Legumes, and Omelette Norwegian. In fine condition, with light scattered soiling. Encapsulated by CAG as being from the Armstrong Family Collection. Only 60 or 70 people are estimated to have been at Omega's historic dinner tribute to the success of Apollo 11, making this an extremely rare menu—we know of no other example ever to be offered at auction. That it comes from the collection of mankind's first moonwalker makes it even more special.
