Nearly 50 years ago, NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong made history by becoming the first man to walk on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission.

From the cap he wore as a Boy Scout to Armstrong's 1969 lunar landing and private mementos that include pieces of a wing and propeller from the 1903 Wright Brothers Flyer, which the astronaut took with him to the moon in July 1969 will be auctioned, according to the auction house.

The auctions will be held on November 1-2 this year, as well as in May and November of 2019, which marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

Speaking to Associated Press, Mark Armstrong, Neil Armstrong's son said his father never mentioned what he wanted to do with those items he kept.

Schmitt was one of the last people to set foot on the moon during the final mission of NASA's Apollo program.

The collection includes a variety of artifacts and keepsakes that span Neil Armstrong's life.
