Description:
Spent more than three days on the moon.
Apollo 17 Lunar Module Flown Commander's Armrest Originally From the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. This metal, right-side armrest has overall dimensions of 7.25" x 10.75" x 7" including brackets. There is a label on the top, "Pull Down Armrest to Release From Stowed Position", around which Cernan has certified and signed: "LM CDR Arm Rest - LM/ Flown as part of Apollo XVII Lunar Module Challenger Gene Cernan". This was the last of the six manned lunar landings. Commander Cernan, the last human to step foot on the moon, used this armrest inside the LM Challenger for more than three days while on the lunar surface. An interesting and unique relic from this important mission. Two photo prints of the LM simulator showing the positioning of this item in the lunar module as well as a NASA technical reference page regarding its design are included. Very fine condition with expected light wear and minor soiling. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on Gene Cernan's letterhead stating, in part: "I hereby certify that the Apollo 17 Lunar Module Flown Commander's Armrest accompanying this letter was flown with me to the lunar surface aboard the Apollo 17 mission December 7-19, 1972... This was the last manned lunar landing to date and the mission where the most time was logged on the moon... I retrieved it prior to the jettisoning of the lunar module that was sent crashing into the moon. This armrest is from my personal collection and has been in my possession since the mission."
