Neil Armstrongs commemorative plaque Is Sold
By satya sruthi On 04 Nov, 2018  


New York: A commemorative plaque brought to the moon on the Apollo 11 mission went under the hammer for $468,500 in Texas, as part of a huge collection that once belonged to late astronaut Neil Armstrong, auctioneers said.

The plaque includes a representation of the lunar module that touched down on the moon on July 20, 1969.

Once back on Earth, it was mounted on a wooden base before being offered to Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon.

The other two astronauts who took part in the mission, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins, also each received one of these plaques.

Armstrong's two sons, Rick and Mark, decided to part with some of the very large collection of their father, who died in 2012. It includes more than 2,000 objects.

Just part of the collection was offered at the sale held Thursday through Saturday in Dallas as well as online.

Another two sales are planned in May and November 2019 by Heritage Auction, which organized the first.
