Description


Flown emergency wrench (‘Tool B’) carried to the lunar surface on board the Apollo 12 Lunar Module Intrepid. L-shaped wrench measures 7″ long, with a circular ring on the bottom of the handle, with a 5″ arm extending from the handle to which different heads could be attached. Inside of the handle bears NASA parts and serial number. Wrench comes on a wooden 10.5 x 9 presentation plaque, with a small engraved plaque which reads, “Presented to / Maj. Alfred Worden, USAF / By the Crew of Apollo XII / A key to your own CSM, checked out aboard Intrepid, November 1969, on its voyage to the Ocean of Storms, Moon.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Worden, which reads, in part, “I hereby certify the emergency wrench…was flown to the moon onboard the Apollo 12 lunar module ‘Intrepid’ as part of its emergency tool kit. I served as the back CMP on that flight, and as such I helped insert the crew into the spacecraft before lunch. This key was a gift from the Apollo 12 crew to thank me and to commemorate their flight.” RR Auction COA.
