    Description

    Apollo 13 Flown Orbital Science Chart "E" Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed, with Signed LOA. A massive continuous photographic lunar surface map measuring 12" wide and approximately 15' long; it is taped together internally and folded into twenty-four panels which are hand-numbered E1 through E24. This is the April 11, 1970 launch date edition, NASA part number "SKB 32100082-375" and serial number "1001", for use during lunar orbits 26-30. It is boldly signed in black felt tip over the map legend on panel E1: "James Lovell". We note that there are several original handwritten notations on panels E14 and E14 in the Fra Mauro region which was the intended landing site for this mission. Rarely seen. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this Orbital Science Chart E was on board the Apollo 13 spacecraft. The lunar chart was for use by Command Pilot Jack Swigert on revolutions 26 through 30 to conduct lunar observations and photography. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. This placard is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
