    Magazine UU: B&W images AS16-104-17001 through 17052 (52). Translunar coast, fluid electrophoresis demonstration.

    The color film has the expected sprocket holes; the B&W does not. Only a relatively small number of these images are familiar to most collectors. There are literally hundreds of photos here that many of us have never seen. A great opportunity for an astute space or photography collector. Please note: This roll has been stored for decades and has been exposed to high levels of humidity. When we unrolled the entire reel to discover which magazines it contained, we found that much of the color film stock exhibited a certain amount of stickiness. Portions of the film would benefit from a proper cleaning. Sold as-is with an attractive opening bid. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.

    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.
