    Description

    Apollo 16 Lunar Module Flown "Rocket" Marker Pen Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young. This felt tip pen, with a gray metallic finish, is approximately 5.25" long and manufactured by the Duro Pen Co. of Brooklyn, New York. It has a piece of Velcro attached near the top to facilitate attachment and stowage of the pen. Printed on the barrel are the NASA numbers: [SEB1]"2100082-301" and "S/N 1049". The original refill is present. This pen was used aboard the Lunar Module Orion (LM-11) during Young's nearly three full days on the moon's surface. Near fine condition with some spots of soiling/verdigris, most pronounced on the pocket clip.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed "John W. Young" on his personal stationery, stating: "I hereby certify that the accompanying felt tip pen/marker with attached Velcro and visible serial number 210 0082 - 301 S/N 1049, was flown with me to the moon and used in 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."
