Al Worden's Apollo 15 Florida License Plate

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+

Description

Official Florida vanity license plate from the Porsche of Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden, 12 x 6, which reads: “APOLO15.” The yellow expiration sticker to upper right is marked: “APOLO15, 00016294, 02-20.” In fine condition, with expected wear from use and elements.

Fond of all things velocity-related, the Apollo 15 crew drove around Cape Canaveral in a convoy of personalized red, white, and blue corvettes during training for Apollo 15 and the debut of the lunar rover. A displayable piece of ‘Earth-based’ hardware that, even in retirement, represents Worden’s need for speed.
