Description


Flown aluminum ‘lunar rover license’ plate, 1.25 x .5, marked with the registration number "LRV 001", with "MOON" as the home state, the year 1971, and the NASA and Boeing logos in the corners. Astronaut Dave Scott carried them in his space suit knee pocket on all three lunar EVAs, including on the lunar rover. Accompanied by a color glossy 10 x 8 photo of Scott walking on the moon, signed in blue felt tip, “Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR, with the miniature license plate in his pocket.” Also accompanied by a 2005 certificate of authenticity from Scott which reads, “I, David Scott…hereby certify that this License Plate for the first manned Lunar Rover was carried by me in my PPK during my EVA’s on the lunar surface.” A certificate of authenticity from Aurora is also included for the signed photo. In very fine condition. This plate, packaged along with others, was stowed in the left knee pocket of Scott's space suit before the launch and remained there until after his return to Earth. They were in space for 12 days, 7 hours from launch to splashdown. More importantly, they spent nearly 67 hours on the moon, including 18h 30m of EVAs, and were carried on LRV itself for around 17 miles across the lunar surface. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
