An original large Bell Aerosystems Apollo Applications Program (AAP) propellant tank made for the Apollo Command/Service Module, measuring approximately 12″ in diameter and 39″ tall, with the Bell Aerosystems part identification plate affixed on the side, reading: "Item Name: Tank Propellant Positive Expulsion, Manufacturers Part No. 8530-471001-1, Manufacturers Serial No. 100310011329, Manufacturing Date: 3-6-70, Contract or Order No. NAS 9-9224." The top has two tubes, one being a gas inlet and the other a propellant outlet. The outside of the tank is stenciled in red, "For Engineering Test," and black, "Caution Handle [With] Care, Do Not Scratch Nick or Dent." The tank is mounted in a larger metal bracket. Includes an original Bell Aerosystems info sheet describing and diagramming the functions of the tank, an assortment of nozzles and mounting hardware, and a pressure gauge, as well as the original wooden shipping crate. In very good to fine condition, with various scuffs and dings, and scattered tarnishing to the metal part ID plate. As a desirable piece of crucial engineering test hardware from the height of the Apollo era, this is a truly impressive piece. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte. Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply.
