    Apollo 9 Flown Communications Earpiece and Ear Tube Assembly Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, with Signed Letter of Certification. A narrow tube of approximately 11" long with an earpiece on one end. This was attached to the internal intercom system and used by Schweickart during the mission. A rare and desirable piece. Fine.

    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.
