    The Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP), built and tested by Bendix Aerospace, was a set of scientific instruments deployed by the astronauts at the landing site of each of the five Apollo moonlanding missions following Apollo 11. These instruments were designed to run experiments after the astronauts left to make long term studies of the lunar environment. Bendix designed a number of small silver emblems, depicting an astronaut carrying the ALSEP, to be carried into space and returned for use as mementos.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
