    Apollo-flown Silver Snoopy

    Apollo Flown Silver Snoopy Award Presented on March 16, 1973, also with Recipient's 25-Year NASA Tie Bar. Based on its presentation date, this 10mm x 13mm Snoopy doing his happy dance almost certainly flew on one of the later Apollo moonlanding missions. It was presented to Robert E. Dunham who is listed in the SFA Awards Database as a Bendix employee at the Goddard Space Flight Center. The original certificate was lost in Hurricane Katrina. A copy of the April 1973 issue of the Goddard News front page is included giving details of the presentation ceremony where Dr. Joseph P. Allen presented Snoopy Awards to Dunham and several others on the above date. Dunham's 10K gold NASA anniversary pin, also included, is mounted on the original tie bar. Both excellent.

    The Silver Snoopy is a special award that is given by the astronaut corps through NASA's Manned Flight Awareness program in appreciation "...for professionalism, dedication, and outstanding support that greatly enhanced flight safety and mission success..." It is always presented in person at the recipient's workplace by an astronaut.

    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.
