23 Feb

RR Auctions Neil ArmstrongSeries 1969 one hundred dollar bill signed on the reverse in black ballpoint by Armstrong. Signature was acquired at an airfield on May 29, 1976, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient. He writes, in full: “I met Neil Armstrong on May 29, 1976. He really wanted to fly in the 1929 Ford Tri Motor Airliner. While we were loading out passengers, he and I were in the cockpit visiting and he told me that his dad had bought him a ride when he was seven years old and that he made up his mind that aviation was going to be his career. I asked if I could get his autograph and he said sure. I had given all my small cash to the ticket agents selling our rides, all I had was a hundred dollar bill and a two dollar bill. I said Neil do you mind signing these? He smiled and said not if you don’t. I met Neil at events later, he always came over to see how the Tri Ford Motor and I were doing.” Also accompanied by two original color satin-finish 10 x 8 photos of Armstrong at the airfield, one of Neil in the cockpit of the Ford Tri Motor and the other of Armstrong and the bill’s recipient posing together. Both of these photos were used in a newspaper article on the front page of the August 30, 2012, Ottawa Herald, recounting Armstrong’s visit, a copy of which is also included. In fine condition. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
