Apollo 11 flown flag makes $62,500 at Nate D Sanders

An exceptionally rare Apollo 11 flown flag has sold for $62,500 at Nate D Sanders.

The piece topped an online memorabilia auction that closed on June 25.

Apollo 11
The flag was flown on the Apollo 11 mission

It's displayed on a certificate that reads: ''This flag traveled to the Moon with Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing, July 20, 1969''.

The lot bears autographs from Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Amstrong and was offered in very good condition.

A briefcase belonging to King George VI and used during the second world war made $18,750.

It was sold alongside a number of photographs showing the king meeting troops and a letter from New York mayor Fiorello La Guardia inviting him to visit the city.

Other top selling lots included a maternity dress worn by Jackie Kennedy, which realised $12,500.

It was accompanied by a large number of candid family photographs and was given by Mrs Kennedy to former nanny Maud Shaw during the early 1960s.

We have a photograph signed by JFK, Jacqueline and their children to Maude Shaw less than a year before the assassination.
