Flown sterling ‘Silver Snoopy’ pin, ‘Type IV’ Dave Scott

20 Nov

Flown sterling ‘Silver Snoopy’ pin, ‘Type IV’ carried on board Apollo 15, and carried in the pocket of Dave Scott’s space suit during all three mission EVAs. Pin measures approximately .5″ tall, and is marked on the reverse with a lowercase “r,” stamped “Sterling,” and also stamped “United Features Syndicate,” underneath the pin. Pin also retains its clutch back and is pinned to a white 5 x 3 card on which Scott has written in black felt tip, “Apollo 15 Snoopy Pin (carried in pocket on [lunar] surface) Dave Scott, Sept 29, 2014.” Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Dave Scott stating, in part, “I hereby certify that the Silver Snoopy Pin included with this letter was carried in the pocket of my A7L-B spacesuit during Apollo 15…This Snoopy Pin was carried during each of our three EVAs at Hadley Apennine site, including the highest point reached on Hadley Delta Mountain. The location of the pocket in which the Snoopy Pin was carried can be seen in the photo above.” A small printed photo of Scott on the lunar surface is at the top of the letter identifying the pocket. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
