DescriptionApollo 16 Lunar Module Flown LM Charm from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Charlie Duke. This gold-colored charm was flown on the Apollo 16 mission during April 16-27, 1972 and was later mounted to this 12K GF disc. It was stowed in Duke's Personal Preference Kit (PPK) aboard the Lunar Module Orion for nearly 72 hours while Duke and fellow crewmember John W. Young explored the Descartes Highlands on the moon. The charm was returned to Earth aboard the Command Module Casper. The reverse of the disc is engraved "A-16 / D-4-20-72". Excellent condition with a ring for suspension.
Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Charles M. Duke, Jr. on his personal letterhead stating, in part: "[This small LM replica] was an item in my Lunar Module PPK... This charm has been a part of my personal space collection since the completion of our mission. May it remind you of the adventure that was Apollo and the triumph of the human spirit."
