    Apollo 17 Flown "AA" Flashlight Batteries (Four) Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Ron Evans. Four separate batteries of the standard "AA" size with a Part Number of "RM12MC 0572" and consecutive Serial Numbers "1207-1210", likely removed from one of the flashlights aboard the Command Module America. Also with this lot is an unsigned, undated autograph note from Ron Evans, in full: "Max- These batteries were used by me on Apollo 17- Why don't you get them singly encased in lucite (this is what I intended to do) You keep two & return the other two to me." and an exhibit tag from the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center. The batteries are quite corroded, as would be expected. The note is crumpled and folded. Four items flown on the last manned lunar landing mission.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Jan Evans (Mrs. Ron Evans) stating: "I certify that the four (4) AA flashlight batteries offered with this letter were flown to the moon on board Apollo 17, December 1972. These batteries were used by my husband Ron Evans, CMP Apollo 17. They have been with our family since that time."
