Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $6,209.53 (includes buyer's premium)


Amazing large double-sided cue card carried to the lunar surface on board the Lunar Module Falcon during Apollo 15. Headed “Contingency EVT (2 OPS),” the 10.5 x 8 card lists emergency procedures to be used aboard the Falcon in the event the docking tunnel could not be used to internally transfer the CDR and LMP from the lunar module to the command module following lunar liftoff and subsequent lunar orbit rendezvous. The card was also to be used if docking between the two vehicles could not be achieved. Commander Dave Scott has added the date to both sides of the card in black ink, “7/23/71.” In fine condition, with upper tab no longer attached but present.

Accompanied by a detailed signed letter of provenance from Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the large double-sided “Contingency EVT (2 OPS)’ Cue Card included with this letter was used aboard the Falcon Lunar Module…during Apollo 15…To facilitate use this cue card was attached to the internal AOT support bracket of the spacecraft by a tab taped to the top…[This] Cue Card has been in my personal collection [since] we returned from the Moon.” This cue card features the vital alternative strategies the Apollo 15 crew would need to perform in the case of a failed lunar orbit rendezvous. If the initial docking procedure proved impossible, or the docking tunnel was unable to open, this ‘Extra Vehicular Transfer’ cue card instructed the astronauts on how to transfer externally across the LM/CSM docked interface connection and then enter the CSM open hatch. An important lunar surface-carried cue card with directions on how to perform an emergency docking spacewalk.
