Iconic 1969 photograph of astronaut Buzz Aldrin as he plants the flag on the surface of the Moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission. One of the most famous images ever taken, this presents here in almost perfect condition and clearly off the original negative. The paper is a fiber backed, gelatin front image that is absolutely consistent to 1969 photography. It is our understanding PSA only encapsulates these as "Type 1" with the purple NASA text on the back for some reason, but this one is off the original negative and developed on period paper, making it absolutely a "Vintage 1" example that grades a perfect 10/10!
