Description

    Apollo 16 Lunar Module Flown Portable LM Light Attachment from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Charlie Duke. A small black bracket, 2" x 1.25" x 1.25" overall, with a white 1.25" diameter round ribbed knob on top and a nine-pin female electrical connector mounted beneath. There are numerous part numbers printed in white on this device including "41108-701-1" and "41108-701-3" on the top surfaces. This was flown to the surface of the moon on the Lunar Module Orion where it was used for just minutes short of three full days in April 1972. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Charles M. Duke, Jr. on his personal letterhead stating, in part: "...the LM Portable Light Attachment... was a part of the Lunar Module hardware and was flown to the lunar surface... Using this attachment, we could move a small spot light around the LM so as to illuminate parts of the LM. It proved to be a very useful piece of equipment... It has remained a part of my personal space collection ever since. May this artifact remind you of the adventures of Apollo..."
