Description

Apollo 14 Flown Pilot's Preference Kit (PPK) Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A Beta cloth bag, 5.875" x 8.875" with a 2" gusset and a metal grommet in a hole at top center (no drawstring present). A sewn-on tag has the printed information: "P/N SEB 12100018-202/ S/N 1114". Handwritten on that same tag is: "Ed Mitchell and Joe Engle/ R11". Joe Engle was the backup lunar module pilot for Apollo 14. These personal preference kits allowed Apollo crewmembers to carry small, lightweight personal items onto the spacecraft. This kit was on board Apollo 14 during its mission to the moon, January 31-February 9, 1971. Dr. Mitchell has boldly signed on the front: "This PPK was Flown to/ The Moon Aboard Apollo 14/ Edgar Mitchell/ Apollo 14 LMP". Excellent condition.

Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity on his personal letterhead, stating (in part): "This document certifies that the accompanying Personal Preference Kit (PPK) S/N 1114 was flown aboard the spacecraft Kittyhawk on the Apollo 14 expedition to the moon which launched January 31, 1971, with Captain Alan Shepard as the commander, Commander Edgar Mitchell as Lunar Module Pilot, and Lt. Colonel Stuart Roosa as Command Module Pilot."
