Description


Alan Bean’s flown data file clip carried aboard the command module Yankee Clipper during the Apollo 12 mission, 2.25 x 1.75 x 1, with a swatch of Velcro affixed to bottom and engraved ID numbers, “P/N SEB32100094–301, S/N 1068, Assy.” Lunar Module Pilot Bean used this clip to keep his checklist book open to the right page during the crew’s 10-day mission to the moon back. In fine condition, with some scattered scratching. Accompanied by a handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in part: “I hereby certify that the accompanying data file clip…traveled to the moon with Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon, and me inside our command module, ‘Yankee Clipper,’ during our Apollo 12 mission in November of 1969…This data file clip has been in my personal collection since returning to planet Earth.” A decidedly appealing and uncommon piece used extensively during the long flight of Apollo 12.
