    Apollo Mission Evaluations: Collection of Twelve NASA / Manned Spacecraft Center Security Badges Issued to Donald T. Hamilton. Hamilton was heavily involved with processing the Apollo capsules upon their return to Houston. A rare group of laminated 3.5" x 2.5" hole-punched badges for various mission evaluations taking place on the third floor of Building 45 at Houston's MSC. The collection is complete from Apollo 8 through 17 with an additional badge marked only "A" and one for the Apollo/Soyuz Test Project. Note that the Apollo 11 badge has a special "First Manned Lunar Landing" graphic while the others are plain. Included is a 2.5" x 3.75" NASA / MSC laminate for Apollo mission 201, the first unmanned test flight of an entire production Block 1 CSM and the Saturn IB. The laminate on Apollo badges 8-11 has started peeling and those badges are toned; the others are excellent. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.
