Description

    Apollo 16 Lunar Module Flown Utility Light Cord Directly from the Personal Collection of John Young, with Signed LOA. Approximately 42" long, this coiled utility light cable assembly features copper wire inside clear insulation, two Velcro-backed strips for mounting to the wall of the spacecraft, and a six pin, Beta cloth-wrapped electrical connector at one end. This was utilized in the Lunar Module Orion on the lunar surface to power a small utility light for the use of the crewmen. It remained in the LM on the moon for nearly three full days. The number on both straps reads "LDW340-53608-1". Rare. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "John W. Young" on his personal letterhead, stating: "I hereby certify that the accompanying coiled Utility Light Cord was flown to the lunar surface aboard the LM with Charlie Duke and myself during the Apollo 16 mission April 16-27, 1972. Charlie gave this cord to me after our mission and it has been a part of my personal collection since."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
