Extremely desirable flown Beta cloth patch of the Apollo 11 insignia carried to the moon during the first lunar-landing mission, measuring approximately 3.5″ in diameter, signed and flight-certified on the reverse in blue felt tip, "Flown to the moon aboard Apollo XI, Buzz Aldrin." Archivally double-matted and framed with an engraved plate to an overall size of 14 x 21.75; the display also features a pair of limited edition FDCs featuring original graphite and color pencil drawings, both numbered 4/25 with silver anniversary postmarks for the Apollo 11 moon-landing, and signed in blue felt tip by father-and-son stamp design team, Paul and Chris Calle. The framed backing features a custom window for viewing the reverse of the patch. In fine condition. Accompanied by a photo of Aldrin posing with the patch, indicating that it was flight-certified in March 1999, as well as an impressive color certificate of authenticity that details the provenance of the patch and states that it was "housed in the Command Module Personal Preference Kit Bag…of Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, and flown to Lunar Orbit aboard the 'Columbia' Command Module on July 16, 1969."
