Item 6376 - Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 Pre-Flight Spacesuit Label Catalog 474 (Apr 2016)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $4,446.75 (includes buyer's premium)


One-of-a-kind International Latex Corporation (ILC) tag that was glued inside Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit at the time of its manufacture but replaced prior to the flight. The tag measures 3.75 x 2 and is filled out in type: “Spec. CP 2001, Item: Pressure Garment Assembly, A7L-100000-42, Model No. 2001A, Size: N. Armstrong, Serial: 056, Date: 11/68, Contract No. NAS 9-6100 74897.” It is stapled to the second page of the original ILC Industries work order directing the replacement of the tag, which totals three pages, 8.5 x 11, January 15, 1969. In fine condition. Accompanied by photocopies of paperwork ordering the modifications to the suit after a fit check test with Armstrong. This item has additionally been verified by an ILC Dover company historian. When changes were made to the suit a new tag needed to be installed to represent the correct part numbers for that revision level, as required by NASA’s contract. ILC outfitted every Apollo astronaut and continues to develop spacesuits for NASA to this day. Though it was removed prior to man’s first flight to the lunar surface, this label would have been in Armstrong’s suit as he did his very first fit checks as well as some altitude chamber work and interface testing with the spacecraft. A unique piece with excellent provenance.
