    Apollo 11: Large Piece of Kapton Foil Removed From Lunar Module "Eagle " On Launch Pad 39A Before Launch. A 3" x 6.5" swatch of Kapton foil removed during an emergency repair before launch. Accompanied by a letter from Grumman Lead Technician Lee Brandt who describes performing the repair while the craft was staged for launch on Launch Pad 39A. Sections of Kapton had to be removed in order to access the area in need of repair, which is how he came into possession of this piece. Also included is a copy of a letter to Mr. Brandt from Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean, where he thanks him for his service to NASA and in particular the Apollo 11 repair. Excellent.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
