Description

    Apollo AS-201 Flown Large Heat Shield Segment in Vintage Acrylic. A section of ablative material removed from the CSM-009 heat shield, approximately 1" x 1" x 0.5", enclosed in a truncated space capsule-shaped display 3.75" x 3" x 1.75" in size. On the back is a paper label visible from the front printed with the text "Apollo Spacecraft 009 Ablator (18000 mph reentry 2-26-66)". On the back are felt tabs so this could be used as a paperweight. AS-201 was the first unmanned test flight of an entire Block I CSM with a Saturn IB launch vehicle. First one of these we've offered. Slightly age-toned, otherwise very fine.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
