Description


Flown aluminum ‘lunar rover license plate,’ 1.3 x 0.8, marked with the registration number “LRV 001,” with “MOON” as the home state, the year 1971, and the NASA and Boeing logos in the corners. Astronaut Dave Scott carried this on all three lunar EVAs, including on the lunar rover. In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the miniature metal Lunar Rover license plate…included with this letter was carried on Apollo Lunar Rover No. 1 for three days of surface exploration during Apollo 15…I carried these license plates in a pocket of my Apollo A7L-B EVA Spacesuit…during our nearly three day stay on the Moon as we drove 27.76 km across the lunar surface during approximately 19 hours of three EVAs exploring the Hadley Apennine region. In commemoration of the first use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), the first vehicle to be driven on another world, I designed and had produced these small license plate replicas for use as presentation mementos after our mission to the Moon.” A sought-after flown piece from the first mission to use the Lunar Roving Vehicle.
