Minimum Bid: $200.00

Sterling ‘Silver Snoopy’ lapel pin flown on the Apollo 8 mission and presented by James Lovell to a Kennedy Space Center Flight Crew Operations worker following the flight. Pin measures approximately .5″ tall, and is marked on the reverse with a lowercase “r,” stamped “Sterling,” and also stamped “United Features Syndicate,” underneath the pin. Pin also retains its clutch back. Includes its original plastic presentation case and a laminated TLS signed by Lovell, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, May 27, 1969. In full: “In recognition and appreciation of your outstanding performance in support of Cape Flight Crew Operations during our training and related activities for the Apollo VIII mission, a Snoopy pin was flown onboard the Apollo VIII spacecraft for you.” In fine condition, with a bit of tarnishing from age. Accompanied by three different Apollo 8 decals. The Silver Snoopy award was created in 1968 as part of the Manned Flight Awareness to allow astronauts to recognize the contributions of outstanding members of the NASA staff. This is a rare and particularly early example of the Silver Snoopy award, with excellent supporting documentation from Lovell. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
