    Apollo 10- Command Module Charlie Brown Flown Spacecraft Identification Plate. A brass plate, 3.25" x 1.75" in size, mounted to a 10" x 5" x 0.75" marble penholder (pens not present). Signed on the base in silver, "Flown on Apollo X Gene Cernan". The brass plate is engraved as follows:
    APOLLO X
    SPACECRAFT 106
    PART NO. V36-000002-801
    COL. THOMAS P. STAFFORD USAF
    CDR. JOHN W. YOUNG USN
    CDR. EUGENE A. CERNAN USN
    LAUNCH DATE - MAY-18-1969

    When Rockwell manufactured the Apollo command module flight spacecraft, they attached to the interior structure three identical, brass identification plates signifying spacecraft number and other key manufacturing information. Upon completion of the mission, it was a tradition for Rockwell to remove these plates during their post-flight inspection of the spacecraft for presentation back to the astronaut crew as part of a specially built pen & pencil set. This is the flown Rockwell ID plate removed from the Apollo 10 Command Module Charlie Brown (Spacecraft #6) and presented to Lunar Module Pilot Gene Cernan. There is some damage to the marble base at the back left which would be easily repaired. The flown plate is in excellent condition. From the personal collection of Captain Gene Cernan accompanied by written authentication by Cernan.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
