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 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. These personal preference kits allowed Apollo crewmembers to carry small, lightweight personal items onto the spacecraft. This kit was on board Apollo 16 on its lunar mission from April 16-27, 1972. Excellent condition.

    Young has certified this item on the front: "Flown on Apollo 16. John Young".
