    Description

    Apollo 11 Training-Used LM Lunar Surface Maps (Training) Book Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut John Young, Signed and Certified. An 8.5" x 10.5" book containing 100+ pages of lunar surface maps (several tabbed) printed on plain paper plus three pages explicating the geological map legends; all are three-hole punched and bound with binder rings between two cardstock covers. The front cover lists the part number as "SKB32100080-371", the serial number as "TRAINING", and the date as "18 JULY 1969", all glued on. Young has signed the front cover: "From My Collection/ John W. Young". The maps are all of the Landing Site 3 and range in scale from 1:100,000 (Lunar Landing Area map) down to 1:5,000 (Lunar Surface Exploration maps). An interesting small sheet glued to the front cover titled "LM LOCATION" instructs the landing crew to use the area maps to plot the descent track, the site maps to locate the landing area, and then the exploration maps to locate the landing point with a note to report the grid coordinates; it also asks the command module pilot to confirm the location if possible. Extremely fine condition with light soiling on the covers.

    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.
