    Crawler pin

    NASA Apollo, Skylab, and ASTP Crawler-Transporter Pin Assembly on Presentation Plaque. A monstrous, heavy shaft, pin, and clip assembly mounted on a 10" x 14" x 0.75" wooden plaque featuring a 7" x 7.5" color photo of the Crawler in action and an engraved plate that reads: "Presented to E.F. Smith October 23, 1980/ Chief, Structural Systems Division. /This pin was removed from the Crawler-Transporter which/ was used to transport the Apollo, Skylab and Soyuz space/ vehicles from the VAB [Vehicle Assembly Building] to Launch Complex 39, Pads 'A' and/ 'B'. The Crawler became operational in 1965." A very cool item for display. Total weight nine pounds. The original photo on the plaque is of the Crawler with a Space Shuttle; also included is a photo of the Apollo 11/ Saturn V on the Crawler. Fine.

    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.
