I have come across something that I feel is not only awesome but could be a great piece of Apollo 11 history. I have found a metal printing plate with the Apollo 11 insignia. Here are the things that stand out:
  1. All the lettering is backwards
  2. The plate is one solid piece; the insignia is not welded on to this 5 1/2" plate
  3. On the back it reads: Houston Post 1969 RED Micro-metal, Photoengravers Plates
  4. It has two small placement holes one on each side, to keep it from shifting
Any help would be great. Thank you in advance.
