An Apollo 11 Beta Cloth "Mission-Emblem",
carried by Buzz Aldrin in his "PPK" Bag!



Apollo 11 "Mission-Emblem" beta cloth patches were printed as four-inch images,
centered on nine-square inch sheets of white beta-cloth. Due to their bulk,
the "Betas" were stowed independently of the crew's personal "PPK" Bags.

This particular example, however, is believed to have been trimmed-down
by Aldrin to fit within his personal Command Module "PPK" Bag. This Beta
has since been beautifully flight-certified by Buzz Aldrin on its verso.

The Apollo 11 Lunar Landing CAPCOM Headset



Representing one of the most important icons of human exploration





It was through this headset that Apollo 11 CAPCOM Charles M. Duke, Jr.
talked Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin down to Tranquility Base!





"Contact Light, OK, Engine Stop"

"We Copy you Down, Eagle"

"Houston, Tranquility Base Here the Eagle has landed"





The above quotes, transmitted through this headset, climax what many consider to be
the most important conversation in history mankind's first landfall on another world!





On the evening of July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon. During their
fateful descent and landing, they were in contact with only one man on Earth: Charles M. Duke, Jr.

As the Apollo 11 crew's landing CAPCOM, Duke was their contact person back in mission control,
where he used this headset to literally talk Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin down onto the Moon.

Thus, the entire drama of the Apollo 11 landing, and consequently every historic exchange between
Duke, Armstrong and Aldrin were transmitted through this actual microphone and earpiece!

Charles M. Duke, Jr. long ago recognized the historic importance of his headset, and has accordingly
preserved it in his space collection after NASA presented it to him as a memento of that night.

In 2007, Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc. was honored to have the opportunity to carefully
document this artifact with General Duke, and prepare it for passage to the next generation.

A Vintage "Postal Life" Cover
__________

signed by the Postmaster General and complete Apollo 11 Crew!



The "First Man on the Moon" stamp is one of the most historic stamps ever issued.
It was the largest stamp ever issued until that time, and also the last issued by the
United States Post Office Department, which later became the U.S. Postal Service.

On the morning of September 9, 1969, the entire Apollo 11 crew unveiled the stamp
in Washington, D.C. with Winton M. Blount, Postmaster General of the United States.

This historic item is a possible prototype of the original cover of the U.S. Post Office
magazine featuring the stamp. It measures approximately 22 x 15 inches, and has
been archivally dry-mounted to matte-board for long-term protection.

The mounted item, in turn, has been beautifully and archivally framed in black leather.

On the morning of September 9, 1969, one of the earliest " First Man on the Moon "
stamps was affixed to this item. It was then postmarked at the ceremony, after which
it was hand-signed by Postmaster General Blount on the cancellation itself!

The Apollo 11 crew, in turn, then neatly affixed their signatures below the Postmaster
General's signature. A photograph of the unveiling was later archivally affixed to the
face as well, placing it into historical context and giving it a very striking look.

In my opinion, this is one of the most important and historic philatelic items residing
in private hands. It is also worth far more than a typical Apollo 11 crew-signed photo,
given its historical importance and uniqueness!

Plus the fact that it originates directly from personal space collection of Michael Collins!

An Apollo 11 Lunar Plaque
__________

signed by the complete Apollo 11 Crew!



This item is a perfect match to the piece directly preceding this, and indeed was kept
together by Michael Collins for that reason for many years.

As related above, on the morning of September 9, 1969, the crew released the stamp
in Washington, D.C., and that evening attended a "Splash-Down" party in Washington.

A commemorative display piece was issued at the party featuring the Apollo 11 plaque,
along with one of the first stamps ever issued (and postmarked that day).

The crew then nicely signed the Apollo 11 plaque so as to match the "Postal Life" cover!

Apollo 11 crew-signed plaques are uncommon, not to mention examples originating from
a crew-members collection and signed on a historic day pertaining to the mission itself!
