Apollo 11 Recovery and President Nixon

Space Art Collectible, Apollo11 Signed by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, President Richard Nixon

To say that gathering the elements for "Apollo 11 Recovery and President Nixon" was an adventure, is an understatement. First the signatures. As it turned out we ended up with four United States un-used blank postcards. On the front of these cards is a preprinted six cent stamp for President Richard Nixon, a five cent plus one cent preprinted stamps for Neil Armstrong, a ten cent preprinted stamp for Michael Collins and finally a four cent preprinted stamp for Buzz Aldrin.

Next we had to locate the exact "Showgard" mounts for all four post cards. These mounts or if you will sleeves, are very important to the display and protection of the contents, all of which are not glued or taped into the mounts.

There has always been such a grand sense of accomplishment when you view the smiling faces of the three Apollo 11 Astronauts, as they are being congratulated and interviewed by President Nixon aboard the recovery aircraft carrier U.S.S. Hornet on July 24, 1969. The Air Stream trailer was used as a quarantine facility for the astronauts, in order to protect them from what they might encounter, if exposed to Earth's atmosphere after being gone so long.

Double conservation matted with "Ultra Violet Light" proof plexi-glass and has "Deep Space Black" metal framing. In the upper left hand corner of the Neil Armstrong autograph there is some toning caused by the verso but not affecting the signature.

Certificate Of Authenticity.

One Of A Kind.
