    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Conrad on his personal notepaper reading, in full: "This Apollo XII heat shield plug from Yankee Clipper/ CSM-108 flew to the moon & returned during the period November 14-24, 1969. You can see from the small amount burned off, that we were extremely conservative in the design of our heatshields. Charles Conrad Jr. CDR Apollo XII". Matted and framed to an overall 9.75" x 7.75". Excellent.

    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.
