    Description

    Apollo Lunar Module Armrest Damper Mechanism. This part, 5.75" x 3" x 1.625" in overall size, still carries its original attached Grumman part tag. Part numbers printed in red on various areas include: "LDW340M10751-1", "LDW340M10756-1", "LDW340M10750-3", and "LDW340 21204-3/ SN23". There are also assorted inspector stamps and a "Cure" date of "?Q66". Each astronaut in the lunar module had two armrests. Two of these energy-absorbing dampers were mounted on each armrest to support the astronaut as the lunar module landed on the moon. This piece of equipment, flight-ready and about to be either assigned to a LM or shelved as a back-up spare, was rescued from scrapping in 1985. Original, pre-mated washers and other pieces of steel in-lay (some with original restraining wires) are still attached. Excellent condition. From the collection of scientist and author Charles Pellegrino.

    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.
