A one-inch long piece of safety line used in the Apollo 14 lunar mission. The line is encapsulated on a 4 x 2.5 card, which reads: "Presented in appreciation of your role in Apollo 14's success. This small portion of the lunar surface safety line was carried by the astronauts on the moon's surface February 5–6, 1971." The card shows a picture of the liftoff of the Apollo 14 mission, and the names and dates of the participants, Alan B. Shepard, Jr., Edgar D. Mitchell, and Stuart A. Roosa. Card is framed along with a color NASA 10 x 8 photo of the crew, bearing printed signatures of all three astronauts and with an Apollo 14 mission emblem sticker, to an overall size of 14 x 11.75. The Lunar Surface Safety Line was a 100 foot long cord designed to be used in an emergency to allow one astronaut to pull another to safety. Despite the overall 100 foot size of the line, very few examples appear on the market. RRAuction COA.
