Item 6203 - Apollo Astronauts ‘My Suit’ Production Tags Catalog 486 (Oct 2016)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,530.85 (includes buyer's premium)


Four laminated “My Suit” production tags for the space suits of Neil Armstrong, Gene Cernan, James Lovell, and Wally Schirra from suit manufacturer International Latex Corporation (ILC), which were attached to the corresponding Apollo suits as they were in production at the ILC plant in Dover, Delaware. Each tag measures 6 x 5.25 and features a printed signature of the astronaut as well as an affixed portrait. In fine condition. These labels have been authenticated by Bill Ayrey, company historian at ILC Dover, the manufacturer of the Apollo, Shuttle and Space Station suits, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from him.

The idea for these labels came about from after workers suggested it would be good to know whose suit they were working on. These labels were applied near the end of production as a quick way to tell suits apart on the production floor. The tags also enhanced the workers’ sense of pride and honor in knowing that they were working on, for example, ‘Neil Armstrong’s space suit.’
