BUZZ ALDRIN'S UNITED STATES FLAG CARRIED ON APOLLO 11


FLOWN silk stars and stripes United States flag. 4 by 6 inches. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY BUZZ ALDRIN directly on flag on two white bars: "FLOWN TO THE MOON ON APOLLO XI. BUZZ ALDRIN." With a Typed Letter Signed from BUZZ ALDRIN.


Buzz Aldrin's letter reads: "This certificate of authenticity certifies that the accompanying Apollo 11 United States Flag 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 4x6 inch American Flag with me in my Personal Preference Kit (PPK). This flag symbolizes our great nation and, as such, I proudly carried it with me to the Moon."
