DescriptionApollo 14 Flown Beta Cloth Swatch on Presentation Letter. A 1" square segment of Beta cloth mounted on an 8" x 10" NASA letterhead issued to Jim Wilkinson and signed in facsimile by the crew. It reads, in part: "In appreciation for your outstanding support of the Apollo 14 mission we the crewmen would like to present you with this piece of equipment carried on board the spacecraft during its flight to the moon and back..." Only the second of these we recall offering. Quite displayable. Very fine.
