Description


Extraordinary flown American flag carried on the Apollo 11 mission, 6 x 4, affixed to its original 9.25 x 11 mount, signed on the mount in black and blue felt tip by the first two lunar landers, "Neil Armstrong" and "Buzz Aldrin"; additionally bears an autopen signature of CMP Michael Collins. The mount features the Apollo 11 mission insignia and reads: "This flag traveled to the moon with Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing, July 20, 1969, Apollo 11, July 16-24, 1969, Armstrong - Collins - Aldrin." Armstrong's iconic words are also printed along the bottom: "One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Framed and in fine condition, with Armstrong's signature extremely light, but still readable. Flown American flags from the first moon landing mission stand out as some of the most sought-after space collectibles; with the presentation certificate boasting signatures of the two heroic astronauts who were the first to explore the lunar surface, this is an especially desirable example.
