    Apollo 8 Flown Heat Shield Ablative Plug in Plastic. This 0.5" x 0.75" plug is sealed in a space capsule-shaped piece of plastic with small cards inserted bearing the following text: "H/Shield Segment Apollo 8 Moon Orbit Dec. 25, 1968" and "B. Anders J. Lovell F. Borman". This plug was likely removed by a technician working on the command module after its return to Earth. Some surface scratching and yellowing, else fine.
