    Description

    Apollo 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."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
