Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $12,806.15 (includes buyer's premium)


Flown aluminum ‘lunar rover license’ plate, 1.3 x 0.8, 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 this on all three lunar EVAs, including on the lunar rover. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott, stating, in part: “I hereby certify that the miniature metal Lunar Rover license plate, ‘LRV-001,’ measuring 1.3” x 0.8,” included with this letter was carried on Apollo Lunar Rover No. 1 for three days of space exploration during Apollo 15…I carried these license plates in a pocket of my Apollo A7L-B spacesuit...during our nearly three day stay on the Moon…In commemoration of the first use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), the first vehicle to be driven on another world, I designed and had produced these small license plate replicas for use as presentation mementos after our mission to the Moon.” In fine condition.

This plate, along with others, was prepackaged in a pack smaller than a pack of gum, which was stowed in the left knee pocket of Scott’s space suit before the launch, where it remained until after his return to earth. It was in space for 12 days, 7 hours from launch to splashdown. More importantly, it spent nearly 67 hours on the moon, including 18h 30m of EVAs, and was carried on LRV itself for around 17 miles across the lunar surface. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
