Lot 478: Full-size red APH-5 flight helmet with dark green rubber oxygen mask, signed on the white visor cover in black felt tip by Neil Armstrong. General expected wear, scratches, marks, and dings, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Zarelli Space Authentication. Armstrong was a test pilot from 1955 until being selected as an astronaut in 1962, during which time he flew early models of jet aircraft as the F-100, F-101, F-102, F-104, F-5D, and B-47. A highly desirable format different from those typically seen, representing the early stages of Armstrong's career in flight.
