    Ex. Alan Bean

    Skylab II (SL-3): Alan Bean's Flown ACR Flashlight Directly from His Family Collection, with Certificate of Authenticity. A heavy, brass-milled two-cell flashlight, 5.125" in length and with a maximum diameter of 1". The bulb and the original batteries have been removed (see adjacent lot for batteries); the lens is intact. The part number "ACR FA 5", serial number "2029", and date of manufacture "2/70" are all engraved on the barrel. "On" and "Off" are engraved near the head which would rotate to turn on and off. A piece of Velcro is attached at the top near the lens. Extremely heavy verdigris as sometimes occurs, very good.

    Included with this lot is a COA on Alan Bean's letterhead signed by daughter and Estate Executor Amy Sue Bean stating that this flashlight was flown and used on the Skylab Space Station and was in her father's possession until his death.
