    Lunar Module and Command/Service Module undocking procedures

    Apollo 13 Flown "Undocking/ Separation" Quick Reference Checklist Cue Card Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed, with Signed LOA. A 4.625" x 6" (overall) heavyweight card printed on both sides, dated March 16, 1970, odd-shaped and with strips of Velcro on both sides for mounting on the instrument panel as needed. The front of this card, which gives detailed instructions on the undocking procedure is signed in black ink: "LM/CSM Separation around moon/ James Lovell". The other side is divided into four sections with titles "MNA", "MNB, "AC1", and AC2". Of course, due to the onboard explosion, the moon landing was aborted and these undocking procedures weren't carried out as planned. Very rare and desirable. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this Apollo 13 Undocking and Separation Checklist was on board the Apollo 13 spacecraft. It was put on the instrument panel for reference when needed. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. This placard is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
