An original Bell Aerosystems oxidizer tank made for the Apollo Command/Service Module, measuring approximately 12″ in diameter and 30″ tall, with the Bell Aerosystems tag affixed on the side, reading: "Item Name: Tank N2 O4 Positive Expulsion, Manufacturers Part No. 8271-471102-1X, Manufacturers Serial No. 100311020012, Manufacturing Date: 10-13-64, Contract or Order No. NAS9-150." The top has two tubes, one labeled "Gas Inlet" and the other "Oxdr Out." The outside of the tank is also stenciled with black text, "Caution - Handle With Care. Do Not Scratch, Nick or Dent." Includes an official Bell Aerosystems Project Apollo Manned Spacecraft "Inspection Record" cover sheet for the "8271-471102-1X Tank Assy," stating: "This hardware for use on: S/C 006." At the bottom of the cover sheet is a note: "Would you stake your life on the effort you made on this hardware? Three other men will have to!" Also includes the original shipping crate from Bell Aerospace in New York. In overall fine condition. Intended as flight-use hardware from early in the Apollo program, this is an interesting and impressive piece. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte. Due to the size and/or weight of this item, a pallett will have to be used and this item will be shipped via Freight.  Please call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
