    Apollo 15: Collection of Nine Original NASA "Red Number" Lunar Color Photos. All are vintage 10" x 8" chromogenic prints on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermarks on the verso. As follows.
    AS15-86-11602: Irwin working at the LRV during EVA-1 closeout. Minor dent and paper adherence. Very fine.
    AS15-86-11618: LRV at Station 6. Pristine.
    AS15-87-11847: Scott at Station 8 (ALSEP) with drill. Pristine.
    AS15-87-11852: Station 8, Lunar Module, LRV. Pristine.
    AS15-88-11894: Memorial to fallen astronauts on lunar surface. Pristine.
    AS15-88-11971: CSM SIM bay viewed from LM, lunar surface background. Small paper adherence. Excellent.
    AS15-91-12343: Earth, a "blue marble" style photo. Light paper adherence. Excellent.
    AS15-97-13257: Schröter's Valley. Pristine.
    AS15-97-13267: Crescent earthrise. Paper adherence. Very fine.
    A nice grouping. The ones noted with "paper adherence" are where images have slightly stuck together due to high humidity. They can likely be restored and these are not nearly as bad as often seen. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
