Apollo 11 Manned Flight Awareness medal, 1.25″ diameter. The face bears the raised re-creation of the famous image of Buzz Aldrin looking at the American flag on the lunar surface; the reverse is engraved, “This Medallion contains metal from spacecrafts Columbia and Eagle, that took Astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins on their historic Apollo 11 mission that resulted in the first landing of man on the Moon.” Medallion is retained in its original holder and accompanied by its 4.5 x 4.5 presentation certificate to issued Larry G. Hasings, and is signed in blue ballpoint by Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins and signed and inscribed in black felt tip “Best wishes Larry, Buzz Aldrin.” Medal and certificate are housed in their original softcover presentation booklet. In fine condition, with a bit of irregular ink adhesion to Aldrin’s signature and inscription. A desirable artifact commemorating—and made from—a piece of history, and presented in its seldom-seen original booklet. Accompanied by an original launch access badge #7042. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
