It reads, in part: "Some twenty-odd months have passed since we last communicated and then only visually at the launch of Apollo 17... A considerable portion of my time has been spent trying to transfer my impressions of the results and significance of Apollo to people throughout the world... In order to bring you up to date on my thoughts in these areas, I am enclosing copies of several papers I have written..." It is signed at the close: "Jack Schmitt". Seven of Dr. Schmitt's articles are included with titles such as: "Apollo 17 Report on the Valley of Taurus-Littrow," "A New View of Earth and History," "The Progeny of Skylab", and "Evolution of the Moon: The 1974 Model". Envelope of transmittal included. Letter in very fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
