    Apollo 12 Lunar Module Flown Right Angle 16mm Camera Bracket Directly from the Personal Collection of Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Certified and Signed, with Handwritten LOA. A black metal bracket, 4" x 2.5" x 1.5" in size plus a protruding knob on front and a small spring-loaded pushbutton at bottom. The engraved Assembly Part Number is "SEB33100277-303" and the Serial Number is "S/N 1011". Captain Bean has written in silver ink on the front: "Landed/ on the/ Moon/ Apollo 12/ Alan Bean LMP". Just think of all the Apollo 12 lunar photos you've seen that were taken from the camera mounted on this bracket! Light wear, 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 black camera bracket, serial number 1011, was flown to the Ocean of Storms on our Apollo 12 Mission in November 1969.

    "I used this bracket to mount our 16mm camera in my window for landing photos, for some of Pete Conrad's and my Moonwalks, and for Lift-off to join Dick Gordon in our orbiting Command Module 'Yankee Clipper.'

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

    "Alan Bean Apollo 12 LMP"
