Desirable flown 2.5 x 1 swatch of fabric carried to the moon during the Apollo 14 mission, designated with black stenciling, “CDR,” and attached to a slightly larger black mount which is affixed to an off-white 8 x 10.5 sheet of NASA letterhead bearing facsimile signatures of the three Apollo 14 crew members. The sheet is presented to Tom Lane, in full: “In appreciation for your outstanding support of the Apollo 14 mission we the crewmen would like to present you with this piece of equipment carried on board the spacecraft during its flight to the moon and back. We hope that this will serve to assure you of our sincere appreciation for the superior workmanship and conscientious performance that made our mission a success.” In fine condition, with a few small stains. An appealing flown piece symbolic of the mission commander Alan Shepard, the first American to travel into space.
