Collection of three Apollo 11 items, including: a flown .5 x .5 swatch of Kapton polymide tape-insulation from the external conical heat shield of the Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia. Affixed to an 8.5 x 11 informational presentation, hand-signed by Ken Havekotte, stating that it was removed after splashdown by O. W. Nasse, who was assigned to the Apollo 11 post landing and safety recovery team; color glossy postcard of Aldrin walking on the lunar surface near the American flag, 5.75 x 4.25, signed in blue felt tip, “Buzz Aldrin”; and an MFA medallion, 1.25″ in diameter, with a raised design of Aldrin on the moon, the landing date, and Armstrong’s iconic quote, “The Eagle Has Landed.” The engraved reverse indicates that the “Medallion contains metal from spacecrafts Columbia and Eagle, that took Astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins on their historic Apollo 11 mission that resulted in the first landing of man on the Moon.” In overall fine condition.
