    Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Miniature Navy Wings Pin Gerald Carr, commander of Skylab 4 (SLM-3) and part of the ground support crew for Apollo 12, asked his friend astronaut Alan Bean to carry this one-inch pair of Navy wings with him on the flight. Upon Bean's return from the Moon, he gave the small pin back to Carr who gave it to his wife JoAnn. Mrs. Carr has written a letter of certification, penned on Skylab III letterhead, swearing to the authenticity of the item. Perhaps more impressive is Moonwalker Alan Bean's signature on a second sheet of paper (a photocopy of the Navy pin), attesting to its having been flown aboard Apollo 12, along with his personal note to Mrs. Carr. All three items are in very fine condition. This item is from the Carr collection and is accompanied by a handwritten letter of authenticity by JoAnn Carr.

    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.
