    Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Flashlight Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon, with Signed COA. A heavy, brass-milled two-cell flashlight, 5.125" in length and with a maximum diameter of 1". The part number "ACR FA 5", serial number "1055", and date of manufacture "7/68" are all printed on the barrel. "On" and "Off" are printed near the head which rotates to turn on and off. A piece of Velcro is attached at the top near the lens. Apollo astronauts were equipped with these small penlights for use throughout their mission. They proved to be quite handy for a variety of tasks. Not tested. There are minor cracks in the lens, otherwise fine condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a signed Certificate of Authenticity from Gordon stating, in full: "This flashlight, Part Number ACR-FA-5, Serial Number 1055, date of Mfg. 7-68, was carried on board the Apollo 12 Command Module Yankee Clipper. It was flown to the Moon during the second lunar landing mission in November 1969. This flashlight was used by me during the flight. It has remained in my personal collection since 1969."
