ASTP, 1975, "Bilingual Presentation Plaque" (professionally matted and framed to 21x18") This bilingual presentation certificate reads, in English (and, we assume the same in Russian) "Presented to Donald K. Slayton / With our sincere thanks and appreciation for your participation in the Apollo-Soyuz crew post-flight tour of the United States, October 13, 1975 - October 25, 1975". This plaque is the companion piece to that offered in the previous lot. The piece is signed by Stafford, Brand, Slayton, Leonov and Lubasov. We assume that all five astronauts/cosmonauts received similar pieces of memorabilia, but, for all practical purposes, that would make each of these unique and highly desirable. A bilingual ASTP crew patch at the upper left jut makes the piece that much more attractive and desirable (we assume the patch was not flown, but who knows?). Striking.
Estimated Value $750 - 1,000.
Ex. the Donald "Deke" Slayton Family collection.

Realized $420
