    Apollo 13 Flown Command Module Door Shim. A 2.625" x 2.5" odd-shaped metal part with the numbers printed at top: "V36-553019/ 340-67-NC". Included is a color photocopy of a North American Rockwell "Temporary Parts Removal Tag". Apollo 13's journey to a moon landing was interrupted by an oxygen tank explosion in the service module forcing emergency procedures that brought the spacecraft back to earth by using the moon's gravity like a slingshot. The whole world watched as the three brave astronauts successfully splashed down after their eventful six day flight. A rare flown relic from this mission deemed a "successful failure." Excellent condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
