A black metal camera handle with a tripod-style screw with a knurled head protruding from one end (Part Number "SEB 33100013-003") and a swivel loop hook from the other. The overall dimensions are 1.5" x 5.25" x 0.75"; engraved on the long flat side is the Part Number "SEB33100013-301" and the Serial Number "1007". Attached to the grip is a 1" x 5.375" cloth utility strap with two snaps, Part Number "V35-601118-11". This particular grip allowed Schweickart to hold and use a 70mm Hasselblad camera during his thirty-seven+ minute EVA from the Lunar Module Spider on the fourth day of the mission, March 6, 1969. Schweickart has signed in silver along the curved long edge: "Camera Handle for EVA/ Flown on Apollo 9/ Rusty Schweickart". Excellent condition.

    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.
