DescriptionApollo 16 Flown Pilot's Preference Kit (PPK) Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Certified and Signed. A Beta cloth bag, 5.75" x 8.75" with a 2" gusset and a metal grommet in a hole at top center with original drawstring present. A sewn-on tag has the printed information: "KIT, PILOT'S PREFERENCE/ P/N SEB 12100018-202/ S/N 1145/ MFG. NASA MSC 4-70". There is also a small 1" x 0.625" tag (apparently duct tape) with "John Young" handwritten in ink. The PPK allowed the Apollo astronauts "to carry certain items of a personal nature on each manned spacecraft flight." (NASA policy statement). This kit was on board Apollo 16 on its lunar mission from April 16-27, 1972. Excellent condition.
On the front of the kit, Young has boldly written: "Flown on Apollo 16. John Young".

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.
