When Rockwell manufactured the Apollo spacecraft, they attached to the interior structure three identical brass identification plates signifying spacecraft number and other key manufacturing information. Upon completion of the mission, it was a tradition for Rockwell to remove these plates during their post-flight inspection of the spacecraft for presentation back to the astronaut crewmembers as part of a specially built desk set. This is the flown Rockwell ID plate removed from the Apollo 13 Command Module (Spacecraft #9) and presented to Mission Commander James Lovell. Excellent condition, no pens present.
On the marble base, James Lovell has written in silver: "From my personal collection. James Lovell".
