DescriptionApollo 16 Lunar Module Flown Mechanical Pencil Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young. This chrome-colored Garland model 35-P mechanical pencil is 5.125" long and has a piece of Velcro wrapped around the top above the clip for ease of stowage and attachment onboard the flight. The NASA part and serial numbers "SEB 12100081 - 301" and "S/N 1012" are plainly engraved on the barrel. There is still lead present and the pencil is functional. This pencil was used aboard the Lunar Module Orion (LM-11) during Young's nearly three full days on the moon's surface. Extremely fine condition with some scattered tiny spots of verdigris.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from John Young stating: "I hereby certify that the silver metal mechanical pencil that accompanies this letter, marked as SEB 12100081 301, S/N 1012, was flown with me to the moon on Apollo 16 and was used aboard the LM on the lunar surface during the mission April 16-27, 1972. It has been a part of my personal collection since the mission."

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
