A complete list of the 8" x 10" red number photos follows: S-69-34875 (purple ink caption), S-69-39957, S-69-39963, S-69-40308, AS11-36-5291, AS11-36-5293, AS11-36-5320, AS11-36-5337, AS11-36-5339, AS11-36-5355, AS11-37-5437, AS11-37-5464, AS11-37-5505, AS11-37-5517, AS11-37-5528, AS11-37-5534, AS11-37-5545, AS11-40-5853, AS11-40-5855, AS11-40-5857, AS11-40-5863, AS11-40-5864, AS11-40-5865, AS11-40-5868 (x2), AS11-40-5877, AS11-40-5886, AS11-40-5898, AS11-40-5902, AS11-40-5903, AS11-40-5905, AS11-40-5915, AS11-40-5917, AS11-40-5924, AS11-40-5927, AS11-40-5929, AS11-40-5931, AS11-40-5932, AS11-40-5942, AS11-40-5946, AS11-40-5948 (x2), AS11-40-5949, AS11-40-5951, AS11-40-5962, AS11-40-5964, AS11-44-6552, AS11-44-6607, AS11-44-6609, AS11-44-6632, AS11-44-6642, AS11-44-6642, AS11-44-6652, AS11-44-6667, S-69-40147, S-69-40216, S-69-40218, S-69-40220, S-69-40946, and S-69-40948. Also included are the following color photos: S-69-39529 (no printed number), AS11-36-5355 (black number), AS11-37-5458 (number printed on verso), AS11-37-5551 (blue number), AS11-40-5875 (blue number), and AS11-40-5902 (blue number). B&W photos: AS11-40-5880, S-69-46034, S-69-45617, and S-69-45635. By a great margin, this is the most important group of original Apollo 11 photos Heritage has had the privilege to offer. Another lot for the sophisticated space photo collector. Generally excellent to pristine. Approximately 10% have just a hint of paper adhering to the emulsion from storage in the humid Houston environment. We feel these could likely be restored by a professional. From the personal collection of Gemini Program Office special assistant and longtime NASA employee, Paul M. Sturtevant.

    Please note: Every color photo in this lot has the desirable and early single line "A Kodak Paper" watermark on the verso.
