    Apollo 9 Flown Hasselblad EVA Camera Grip Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, Signed and Certified. 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.

    Included with this lot is a glossy color 8" x 10" photo (NASA image AS09-19-2982) of Schweickart holding the camera attached to this handle during his EVA. The image was taken from the Command Module Gumdrop.

    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.
