    Ex. Gene Cernan

    Apollo 17 Flown "Aitken" Map from the "CSM Lunar Landmark Map Book" Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified. A three-hole punched 8" x 10.5" lunar map on photographic paper, image size 8" x 8.75". On the verso is attached a 4" x 3.375" label; it states (beneath an Apollo 17 mission insignia): "The Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection/ The crew used this flown Apollo 17/ - CSM Lunar Landmark Map - / to study the Moon from lunar orbit/ [signed] Gene Cernan/ Eugene A. Cernan/ Apollo 17 Commander". This page was removed from the complete CSM Lunar Landmark Maps book with a part number of "SKB32100123-322" and serial number "1001". Included is an 11" x 8.5" color photo of Gene Cernan holding the complete flown book against a beautiful background photo of the Apollo 17 CM America orbiting the moon. The caption reads: "Eugene A. Cernan, who was the Apollo 17 mission commander and the last man to walk on the Moon,/ holds the Apollo 17 'Lunar Landmark Map Book' from which the accompanying 'Aitkin' map plate originated." The crater shown in this lunar map is a large lunar impact crater that lies on the far side of the Moon, named for Robert Grant Aitken, an American astronomer. Perfect for matting and framing together. Excellent. From the collection of Steve Jurvetson.

    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.
