Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $943.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Alan Shepard's Apollo 14 training-worn Beta cloth name tag, "A. Shepard," measuring 3.5 x 1.75, removed from the PLSS (Portable Life Support System) RCU (Remote Control Unit) after training. In very good condition, with wear consistent with considerable use. Accompanied by a photo diagram showing the label on Shepard's suit (as worn by Dan Schaiewitz) during training. As Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC, Schaiewitz wore space suits to help develop, troubleshoot, and verify procedures used by the astronauts. These name tags were removed and replaced after the final crew training exercise for each mission, as they had only two RCU mockups to be used for all Apollo Crew Training missions. From the collection of Dan Schaiewitz, who worked as Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC. View Dan's many Collect Space posts here. Engineer Dan Schaiewitz gives us a fascinating firsthand glimpse into his experiences on the cutting edge of space exploration during the Apollo missions, in this podcast.
