    Description

    Apollo 14 Lunar Module Flown U.S. Nickel Coin in Presentation Plaque, Originally from the Personal Collection of NASA Employee Tony Broadway. A 1912 Liberty (or "V") 5¢ piece mounted in a 7" x 6.5" Plexi-covered heavy wooden wall plaque above an engraved plate that reads: "APOLLO 14/ First U.S. 5 Cent Coin Landed on the Moon/ Date 2-5-71 Time 05: 05: 02.9/ Splash-Down/ Date 2-9-71 Time 16:05:20". At the very bottom are the hand-engraved signatures of the crew "Al Shepard", "Stuart A Roosa", and "Ed Mitchell". Apollo 14 was the third manned moon landing mission. Very good condition with some light scratches and wear. The nickel is well worn.

    This plaque hung in the Boar's Head Pub in Rockledge, Florida for a number of years, part of the collection of owner Tony Broadway, a former NASA employee. He was quite friendly with many of the early astronauts; they frequented his establishment, a sort of private retreat, when they were in the area.
