FLOWN Apollo 11 crew emblem printed on 4 1/2 by 4 1/4 inch swatch of white Beta-cloth depicting an eagle flying over the surface of the moon, claws gripping an olive branch. Emblems of this type were worn on all of the Apollo 11 astronauts' space suits. With a Typed Letter Signed by BUZZ ALDRIN.
SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY BUZZ ALDRIN: "FLOWN TO THE MOON ON APOLLO XI. BUZZ ALDRIN."
Buzz Aldrin's letter reads: "This certificate of authenticity certifies that the accompanying Apollo 11 Mission Emblem Beta Cloth Patch was flown to the Moon aboard the command module “Columbia."
In July of 1969, I landed on the Moon as part of the Apollo 11 crew. To help commemorate this historic milestone, I chose to personally carry the accompanying Apollo 11 Beta Cloth Mission Patch with me in my Personal Preference Kit (PPK). This Beta Cloth represents our mission emblem as well as the fireproof cloth that we used as part of our equipment. As such, I proudly carried this patch with me to the Moon.
This Apollo 11 Mission Emblem Beta Cloth Patch has remained a treasured part of my personal space collection since 1969."
