BUZZ ALDRIN'S provenance letter reads: "This letter certifies that this 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 historical milestone, I chose to personally carry this 4 by 6 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."
