LM-1 flew on the unmanned test flight of Apollo 5. LM-2 never flew and is in the National Air and Space Museum. LM-3 flew in Earth orbit with Apollo 9 where it passed all its docking and extraction tests. LM-4 (Snoopy) flew with Apollo 10 to the moon where, in further tests in preparation for a moon landing, it separated from the Command Module Charlie Brown and descended to within 8.4 miles of the lunar surface. Extremely fine condition with just a couple of scrapes to the wood at the right edge.
At the bottom of this wooden plaque, Young has written in silver: "Plaque Flown on Apollo X. John Young".
