UNITED STATES FLAG CARRIED BY BUZZ ALDRIN ON APOLLO 11.
FLOWN United States Flag, made of silk, 4 by 6 inches. Mounted on a color 12 by 10 inch NASA certificate which 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 ALDRIN COLLINS." The bottom edge has the first words by Neil Armstrong after stepping on the Moon: "One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." The Apollo 11 crew emblem is surrounded by printed signatures of the crew. Matted and framed, 17 by 15 inches. With a Typed Letter Signed by BUZZ ALDRIN.
BUZZ ALDRIN'S signed provenance letter reads: "This United States flag was carried to the Moon during July 16 to 24, 1969 on the Apollo 11 mission. The flag was carried in the command module 'Columbia' and is approximately four by six inches in size. The lunar module 'Eagle' with Neil Armstrong and myself aboard made the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969.
It is mounted on an original NASA certificate with printed signatures of the Apollo 11 crew and reads: 'This flag traveled to the Moon with Apollo 11, the first lunar landing, July 20, 1969.' Our mission emblem of an eagle flying above the Moon is illustrated above Neil's first words after stepping onto the lunar surface of: "One Small Step For A Man, One Giant Leap For Mankind.'
The flag has been in my private collection since our return from the Moon in July 1969."
