Description


Unbelievably rare and historically significant lunar surface extravehicular activity (EVA) Cuff Checklist worn and used by Apollo 15 commander Dave Scott. 20 double-sided pages, 3.75” x 3.5”, with metal spiral binding working into a curved, 6.25” aluminum arm brace with Velcro wristband to hold it in place around the outside of Scott’s EVA space suit. Inside of cover bears the printed signatures of Joe H. Roberts, R. G. Zedekar, and Dave Scott, and is also initialed in blue ballpoint by Dave Scott. Includes letter of provenance from Dave Scott.

Highly prized, and greatly sought after, this mission critical cuff checklist is coated in lunar dust from its extensive use by Scott as he and fellow astronaut Jim Irwin explored their landing site at the Marsh of Decay, Elbow Crater, and St. George Crater during the mission’s first EVA. Securely mounted on Dave Scott’s left wrist for over 6 hours and 33 minutes on the surface, this rare checklist also guided the astronaut in the collection and stowage of the first contingency lunar sample, deploying the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), unstowing the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) and configured the LRV for its first drive, among other important mission and contingency activities.

Apollo lunar surface EVA artifacts are the rarest and most desirable of all flown space memorabilia. Rarely offered for sale, most cuff checklists reside in museums or in the private space collections of the moonwalkers themselves. Individual pages from a cuff checklist—especially one with trace amounts of lunar dust—would sell individually for tens of thousands of dollars, making this complete artifact a priceless and important addition worthy of only the finest private or institutional collection.
