    Apollo 10 Flown Heat Shield Plug in Display Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot John Young, Signed and Certified. A quarter section of a round plug, approximately 0.625" x 0.375" x 1.75" long, sealed in a 3" diameter x 2.5" tall Lucite cylinder with "CERNAN STAFFORD YOUNG/ APOLLO 10/ MAY 18-26, 1969" engraved on the bottom. Young has signed on the top: "Flown/ John Young". Apollo 10 was a full-out dress rehearsal for the upcoming Apollo 11 mission that tested all the procedures and equipment of a moon landing mission except for the actual landing. The Lunar Module Snoopy, with Gene Cernan and Tom Stafford aboard, came within 8.4 miles of the lunar surface while Young orbited the moon in the Command Module Charlie Brown, becoming the first man in solo lunar orbit. Excellent condition, still in its original box.
