Fifteen Charms that Traveled to the Moon on Apollo 16, Still Sealed as Flown.Apollo 16 Flown Mission Insignia Charms (Fifteen) in Original Package Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Certified and Signed. Each of these white metal charms with a color mission insignia is 18mm in diameter plus the suspension hole; each has a jump ring attached. All fifteen are tightly sealed into a 2.25" x 1.75" plastic pouch in which they were carried aboard Apollo 16, April 16-27, 1972, with crewmembers Young, Mattingly, and Duke. Excellent condition.
Please be sure to view the lot following (41131) for a matching group of Apollo 16 medalets. It is absolutely amazing that, thirty-seven years after the mission, these charms (and the following medalets) are still in the sealed plastic package in which they flew to the moon in Young's PPK. It seems highly unlikely that there will be any other such untouched, unseparated groups of original flown memorabilia come to market. A rare offering to the astute space collector, worthy of the finest personal or institutional collections.
On the plastic pouch, John Young has written: "Flown. John Young".
