    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Ablative Plugs (Ten) from the Estate of NASA Engineer Donald T. Hamilton. From the person who wrote the "Postflight Testing of Command Modules" NASA Technical Note (photocopy included), here are rare flown relics he saved from the processing of the CM-110 after the Apollo 14 mission to the moon. We offer ten 0.75" x 0.5" ablative plugs; these were threaded into holes to cover the bolts that were used to secure various access panels around the exterior of the spacecraft. Also included are five incomplete (broken) plugs from the same spacecraft. Extremely rare material with excellent history. Fine. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.
