It was mounted on the instrument panel, so that any necessary corrective action could be accomplished in a timely manner. Fortunately, it was not used. It is from my personal collection of artifacts and has been in my possession ever since the mission."

    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.
