    Description

    Apollo 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 1149/ MFG. NASA MSC 4-70". There is also a small 1" x 0.5" 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 landing mission from April 16-27, 1972. Excellent condition.

    On the front of the kit, Young has boldly written: "From my personal collection. Flown on Apollo 16. John Young".
