Item 6384 - Apollo 15 and 16 Topographic Models Catalog 486 (Oct 2016)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $600.00 +
Sold Price: $3,503.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Rare pairing of Apollo 15 and Apollo 16 topographic plastic models, both 1/12500 scale, removed from the LM simulator surface model used to train the mission astronauts. The Apollo 15 map, 31 x 37, depicts the Hadley Rille landing site and notes landmarks such as Arrowhead, Eagle Crest, and the South Cluster; the Apollo 16 map, 29 x 44, depicts the Descartes landing site and features landmarks such as the Smoky Mountains, Stone Mountain, Spook, Gator, and Baby Ray. Both maps were prepared and published under the direction of the Department of Defense by the US Army Topographic Command. In overall very good to fine condition, with scattered bends, creases, and cracks; the Apollo 16 map bears the brunt of the damage, with several repaired and unrepaired cracks, tack holes, and edge chips. Both maps are accompanied by letters of authenticity from George Franklin, a NASA Crew Station Subsystem Manager for the Lunar Module, providing background information on the use of the simulator, and attesting that these models were taken from the simulator surface model. Only a few known copies of lunar landing site topographical maps are known to exist, with even fewer available for public sale. The Leon Ford Collection. Please contact RR Auction for a shipping quote.
