    Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Flown Flashlight Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Docking Module Pilot Deke Slayton. A heavy, brass-milled two-cell flashlight, 5" in length and with a maximum diameter of 1". Not opened but apparently there are batteries inside. It has a part number of "ACR FA 5", a serial number of "3005", and a date of manufacture of "6-72" etched into the barrel. "On" and "Off" are etched near the head and a piece of Velcro is attached at the top near the lens. About very fine condition with a couple of minor dents on the barrel and a bit of crystallization on the inside of the lens.

    Included with this lot is a signed Certificate of Authenticity from Kent Slayton (Deke's son), stating: "I certify that this flashlight belonged to my father, Astronaut Donald Kent 'Deke' Slayton and was placed into a sealed bag with his other flown items after his ASTP flight. It has been kept in our family safety deposit box, in my keeping, until recently opened and released for auction. To my knowledge it is genuine in all respects."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
