    Apollo 16 EVA-III Field Geology Report and Traverse Map Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Certified and Signed. Two unflown items reporting on the geological observations made by John Young and Charlie Duke during their third and last Apollo 16 moonwalk on April 23, 1972, lasting five hours and forty minutes.
    (1) A seven page (printed one side only), 8" x 10.5", stapled, mimeographed report dated April 23, 1972 and titled "APOLLO 16 - EVA III/ REPORT OF APOLLO FIELD GEOLOGY INVESTIGATION TEAM/ U.S. Geological Survey". An interesting account, summarizing the various geological features encountered, the samples collected by number and weight for all three EVAs, and the Hasselblad film usage. It concludes, in part: "The terrain that was traversed and sampled during EVA III is less densely cratered than that described from EVA I and II..." Fine condition with some rust and impressions from original paper clip.
    (2) A heavily-captioned, 22" x 34" map "Prepared in cooperation with the Manned Spacecraft Center,,, Under NASA contract No. T-5874A" by the Apollo Field Geology Investigation Team, titled "APOLLO 16 PRELIMINARY EVA-III TRAVERSE MAP" and dated April 23, 1972. Fine condition with some toning at the original folds and paper clip rusting.

    Young has certified the report at the top of page one: "From My Collection/ John W. Young". He has certified the map at the bottom: "From My Collection/ John W. Young".

    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.
