    Space Shuttle Atlantis (STS-101) Flown "Houston 2012" Lapel Pin in Lucite Display. As part of Houston's bid for the 2012 Olympics spearheaded by the Houston 2012 Foundation, NASA flew a limited quantity of their lapel pins on the STS-101 mission to the International Space Station. This mission took place just a few months before the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. Offered here is one of those flown pins in an attractive 5.25" x 5.25" x 1" clear Lucite display. The text on the enclosed NASA Certificate of Authenticity reads, in part: "These Small Olympic Lapel Pins were flown aboard the United States Space Shuttle ATLANTIS, on its successful mission to service and supply the International Space Station, STS-101, May 19-29, 2000..." A handsome desk display with appeal to collectors of both Space and Olympic memorabilia. Excellent with a very minor surface flaw at right edge.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
