Description


Flown U-shaped aluminum equipment label, 9 x 4, labeled “Tool B Unlatch,” with a semi-circular arrow pointing counter-clockwise, signed in black ink, “This hatch label was attached to the Apollo XI spacecraft ‘Columbia’ and was flown into lunar orbit in July 1969. Buzz Aldrin, Apollo XI LMP.” Label is affixed to a 12.25 x 7.25 black board. Accompanied by a 1998 letter of certification from Aldrin stating “I hereby warrant and certify that the aluminum equipment label, identified by the words ‘TOOL/B/UNLATCH’ was salvaged from the Command Module forward hatch of the ‘Eagle’ and was flown to the moon on the Apollo 11 flight…The label is from my personal collection of Apollo artifacts.” In fine condition, with expected toning and wrinkling to label. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Novaspace. This presents an extraordinarily rare opportunity to acquire Apollo 11 flown material—with direct astronaut provenance from the second human being to set foot on the lunar surface. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
