Available to US bidders only. Shuttle curved fit check tile, 7.5 x 6 x 2.75, marked “S/N #C68128,” with other notations on the same side. Before crews installed the actual reentry-enabling thermal heat shield, fit-check tiles were fabricated and installed on the orbiter's body. These ‘stand-in’ tiles were then referenced to manufacture their flight-ready counterparts. Scattered surface loss, otherwise fine condition. RR Auction COA.
