The Kings Point manufacturer’s tag is sewn into the collar area, with a small identification tag below, “Richard Gordon.” The suit exhibits typical wear from use. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Gordon, in full: “I hereby certify that this Apollo Era Flight Suit is from my personal collection.” A fabulous Apollo item with excellent provenance from the astronaut himself.
