Description

Apollo Command Module Power Control Assembly, measuring 9″ x 11.5″ x 5″, with a tag on the side reading: "Power Control Assy, DC Box…Part No. V36-452020-501, Mfr Code 03953, Contr. NAS9-150, Serial 06362AAH2613." The unit features two motor switches connected by white wiring covered with a light blue fire-resistant silicone compound, indicating that this was a flight spare unit. The contacts inside the motor switches are made of gold alloy, and were therefore highly sought-after by scrappers—they likely scrap out at about half an ounce of gold per switch. In fine condition.
