Lot 454: Early vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of Armstrong with his X-15 hypersonic rocket-powered aircraft, signed and inscribed to his dentist in fountain pen, "To Doctor Mikeska, who's a credit to his profession, & to Kelsie, who's a credit anywhere, Neil Armstrong." Mounted against a wooden plaque along with a nameplate and unsigned lithograph to an overall size of 14 x 21. In very good condition, with a few chips and dings to edges, an irregularly trimmed bottom edge, and the inscription and signature a couple shades light. The dentist was local to the NASA area and Armstrong's signature became slightly faded from being displayed in the office over the years. A nice example of an extended Armstrong autograph.
