Description


Extraordinary color matte-finish 11 x 14 photo of Commander Armstrong's boot on the surface of the moon, affixed to the original 16 x 20 mount, inscribed on the mount in another hand, "To Minister Rufus Z. Smith, With Best Wishes from the Apollo 11 Crew," and signed in black felt tip, "Neil Armstrong," "M. Collins," and "Buzz Aldrin." Collector's notation to lower border indicates that the signatures were obtained in Ottawa on December 2, 1969. In very good to fine condition, with all of the handwriting faded but fully legible. Smith was an American diplomat who served as a first lieutenant in the Army Air Corps in World War II, and then later in the United States foreign service from 1946 to 1974, retiring as a deputy assistant Secretary of State. Four months after landing on the moon, and a month after completing their 'Giant Leap' world tour, the Apollo 11 trio spoke to Canadians outside Parliament on a visit to Ottawa on December 2, 1969. Later that evening, the astronauts were honored at a dinner held by the Government of Canada at the Chateau Laurier Hotel. A tremendous Apollo 11 offering that boasts unique imagery and a full set of signatures.
