Other items that the astronaut took with him to the moon include a U.S. flag, the largest size typically flown during Apollo missions, a United Nations flag, various state flags, and some Robbins Medallions. Armstrong's collection also includes a rare gold medallion. "There will be items that make you think, items that make you laugh and items that make you scratch your head", the astronaut's son Mark Armstrong said. "He did save all the items, so he obviously felt they were worth saving".

"There will be flown items, autographed items and items of historical significance". Mark and his brother Rick, discovered that there were some things for restoration, and some things needed to be researched for proper identification.

"The legacy of Apollo is if you set your mind to do something, get everybody together and everybody agrees we should accomplish it, and then we go ahead, it became something we all could be proud of", said Jim Lovell, the first person to fly in space four times.

The brothers eventually turned to Collectibles Authentication Guaranty (CAG), a Florida-based company of the Certified Collectibles Group, which authenticated the artifacts. In addition they will be sold to silver coins, which were released in memory of the space program "Apollo".
