Neil Armstrong’s Personal Belongings To Be Auctioned

The personal collection of Neil Armstrong, the first man to have set foot on the moon, is to be sold in a series of auctions later this year and in 2019.

The collection of the astronaut who died in 2012 includes items such as pieces of a wing and propeller from the 1903 Wright Brothers flight that Armstrong took with him to the moon.

Neil Armstrong died in OH in 2012 at the age of 82 and his family has turned to Heritage Auction of Dallas to sell items from the astronaut's estate.

"I don't think he spent much time thinking about it", Mark said. "He did save all the items, so he obviously felt they were worth saving".

Neil Armstrong's collection includes a variety of artifacts from his 1969 lunar landing, as well as private mementos.
