Personal belongings of the first astronaut who landed on the moon - Neil Armstrong - put up for auction in Texas.
Items to be auctioned include artifacts and keepsakes that range from the cap that Armstrong wore as a Boy Scout to materials from the 1903 Wright Flyer, the world's first powered airplane that the astronaut brought with him to the moon in July 1969.
Speaking to Associated Press, Mark Armstrong, Neil Armstrong's son said his father never mentioned what he wanted to do with those items he kept. These medals were commissioned by the Apollo crew themselves and were flown to space during all the Apollo missions, including Apollo 11.
"He did save all the items, so he obviously felt they were worth saving", he pointed out.
Neil Armstrong's collection includes a variety of artifacts from his 1969 lunar landing, as well as private mementos.
Among the items on auction are Robbins medallions flown on the Apollo 11 mission, including an "extremely rare gold example".
Faced with the responsibility of conserving, preserving and insuring irreplaceable items and honoring their father's legacy, Armstrong and his brother, Rick, found that some things needed restoration, and that some required research to be properly identified.
Dallas-based Heritage Auctions will handle the auctions. "You show somebody something from the space program, and they are fascinated by it".
Dubbed the Armstrong Family Collection, the collection contains more than 2,000 items and will be under the hammer in a series of three auctions.
