    Description

    Apollo 12 Lunar Module Flown LM "Charm" on Unflown Tie Clasp Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, with Handwritten LOA. A diminutive but highly-detailed metal representation of the lunar module, 0.75" x 0.625" in size. It has been mounted to a silver-colored tie clasp with an engraved "APOLLO XII" across its 1.75" length. This LM actually flew in the second LM to land on the moon. Excellent.

    Included in this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity on his personal letterhead. It reads, in full:
    "I hereby certify that the accompanying metal lunar module that is now attached to the tie bar engraved Apollo XII traveled to the lunar surface of the Ocean of Storms with me aboard our Lunar Module, 'Intrepid' during the Apollo 12 mission in November 1969.

    "It has been in my personal collection since that time.

    "Alan Bean Apollo 12 LMP"
