    Description

    John Young's NASA U.S. Government Photo Identification Badge, Dated 1981, Directly from his Personal Collection, Signed. A 2.625" x 3.875" laminated ID badge for the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, with a metal-grommeted hole at top. Young's color photo, his surname "YOUNG", and the NASA logo is on the front. The verso has his vital statistics along with his signature, the facsimile signature of the Security Officer, a return postage guarantee, and the text "NASA FORM 4 - FEB 81 PREV. EDIT. ARE OBSOLETE." This would certainly have been Young's badge during the period he commanded the first-ever Space Shuttle mission STS-1 and likely also the STS-9 mission. Very fine condition with normal honest wear from use.
