    Apollo 7 Flown Heat Shield Plug in Lucite. A 1.5" x 0.75" x 0.5" piece of heat shield material enclosed in a 2.125 x 1.75 x 1 block of Lucite with an engraved plaque reading, in part: "Souvenir Specimen from 1st Manned Apollo Spacecraft Apollo 7 Command Module 101...". Crewmembers Schirra, Eisele, and Cunningham spent nearly eleven days in space, October 11-22, 1968, aboard Apollo 7, the first three-man American mission. Fine condition with slight yellowing; a tiny sliver of the heat shield material is exposed on the bottom due to the thinness of the Lucite covering it.
