DescriptionApollo 10 Lunar Module Model on a Plaque Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot John Young, Certified and Signed.

It has been mounted (removable) to an 18" x 12" x 0.75" wooden base along with an unflown embroidered mission insignia patch and a brass plate, 5.25" x 1.75", with the engraved text:
MAN'S CLOSEST APPROACH TO THE MOON
MAY 22, 1969
This record for the closest approach to the moon, 8.4 miles, didn't last very long. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 actually landed on the moon. It couldn't have been accomplished though without Apollo 10's extremely successful "dress rehearsal" flight with its all-veteran crew of Thomas Stafford, John Young, and Gene Cernan. This was likely presented to Young by Grumman, the LM manufacturer. Extremely fine condition with apparently one tiny piece missing from the model.
On the wooden base, John Young has written in silver: "From My Personal Collection. John Young".

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
