Item 555 - Edgar Mitchell and James Lovell Catalog 409 (May 2013)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,911.20 (includes buyer's premium)


Scarce flown 50-page segment of a microfilmed Bible carried to the lunar surface in the space suit of Lunar Module Pilot Ed Mitchell, presented on a serial numbered 5 x 7 informational sheet housed in a presentation folder, signed at the bottom in black ballpoint and felt tip, “James Lovell, Apollo 13,” and “Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14.” In fine condition. The Bible was produced by the Apollo Prayer League, a group of NASA engineers, scientists, administrators, and astronauts. Containing 50 pages of the King James Bible, the microfilm can easily be read under a microscope and represents the first and only Bible to fly to the lunar surface. This particular example originates from the collection of Harold Hill, a NASA biomedical administrator who co-founded the Apollo Prayer League, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Robert Pearlman, founder of collectSPACE. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
