Incredible flown lunar map page removed from the Apollo 13 LM Lunar Surface Maps book originally presented to George Colton by the mission’s prime crew, 10.5 x 8, signed in black felt tip, “James Lovell, Apollo 13” and “Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP.” The 1:5000 scale map is dated April 1970 and depicts the lunar surface region of Fra Mauro–21. In fine condition. Accompanied by two certificates of authenticity, and a photocopied packet of the Apollo 13 stowage list, showing the inclusion of the LM Lunar Surface Maps book as item number ‘0114.13.’ Colton was the book manager for lunar graphics used on the Apollo 13 mission, an assignment which ultimately never reached its objective of landing on the moon. Although never utilized by the crew, Apollo 13 lunar map pages remain highly sought-after and poignant reminders of NASA’s resiliency. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
