Dave Scott’s Lunar Surface-used Lunar Rover Map

Extraordinary lunar map used on the surface of the moon, labeled “Hadley Rille, EVA-II, 3 of 3,” one page, 10.5 x 8, signed and certified in black felt tip, “This map was used aboard Lunar Rover #1 on the lunar surface at Hadley-Apennine during Apollo 15, Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 15 Lunar Rover ‘Bearing Map’…was carried aboard Lunar Roving Vehicle #1 on the surface of the Moon for three days during Apollo 15…This ‘Bearing Chart Map’…consists of a photo map of a section of the Hadley Apennine regions on the Moon with curves depicting the planned route of LRV traverses during the second of three EVAs on Apollo 15. The Map also includes hand-written notes of crater names and circular notes defining the bearing and distance from the indicated stations back to the Lunar Module (LM) Falcon. This map was used for emergency return to the LM in the event the Lunar Rover was unable to return…This map was mounted on the Rover throughout the three days of surface excursions to be readily available. To expedite recovery and use, this map had been temporarily removed from a book of ‘LM Lunar Surface Maps’ and attached to a Rover post with a large clip. The Map contains traces of lunar dust surface and was exposed to the temperature extremes, radiation, and Solar Wind on the surface of the Moon…This LRV Bearing Map for EVA-II, 3 of 3, has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” It was during this second EVA that Dave Scott and Jim Irwin recovered the ‘Genesis Rock,’ a large sample composed primarily of anorthite and formed in the early stages of the solar system, at least four billion years ago. The Apollo 15 mission was also the first to use the lunar rover, which logged a total of 56 miles traveled during the EVAs. An absolutely outstanding and historically significant piece. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.

Dave Scott’s Apollo 15 Lunar Surface-used Scissors

Flown scissors carried aboard the Apollo 15 mission and used on the lunar surface by Commander David R. Scott, measuring 8.25″ long, manufactured by Weck. The stainless steel surgical-style scissors are engraved on the side with the NASA part number, “SDB42100059-202,” and serial number, “1028,” with “Weck U.S.A. Stainless.” Three red swatches of Velcro are affixed near the screw. In fine condition, with good spring tension and some adhesive surrounding the Velcro swatches. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 15 CDR surgical scissors…are from my personal collection and were used during launch, mission operations, and on the surface of the Moon during Apollo 15…The red Velcro tab identifies the Commander’s scissors to facilitate attachment and stowage. They were located in a pocket strapped onto the leg of my spacesuit (Pressure Garment Assembly) at launch and transferred to the leg of my in-flight coverall garment during cabin operations. The scissors could be used for many different contingency operations in the lunar module on the surface, during EVAs, and during orbital operations. However, the primary use of these scissors on Apollo missions was to open plastic food pouches…These CDR surgical scissors have been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” A fantastic tool extensively used on the lunar surface by the seventh man to set foot on the moon.

RR Auction Dave Scott Apollo 15 PLSS Cable

RR Auction  Dave Scott PLSS CableCable flown to the moon on Apollo 15 and used to connect Scott’s space suit to his Primary Life Support System during extra-vehicular activities on the lunar surface. Blue cable measures 17″ long and consists of a set of wires wrapped in cloth with a robust circular metal connector at the end, engraved on top with the ID numbers “ASSY 9046 SN 444.” Connector measures 1.5″ in diameter and has a functional rotating ring which was used to securely lock the crucial connection in place. In fine condition, with some fraying to cloth cable wrap where it was cut. Originates from Scott’s personal collection and is accompanied by signed a certificate of authenticity. Provenance: Aurora, 2004.

The Primary Life Support System (PLSS) was the backpack-like device which provided oxygen and regulated all necessary functions during extra-vehicular activity, such as suit pressure, ventilation, and two-way communication. While on the moon, Scott conducted three EVAs for a total time of 18 hours and 35 minutes spent on the lunar surface—an impressive duration made possible by this cable. Scott kept this all-important piece of hardware in his collection for over three decades, as NASA’s policy permitted astronauts to keep disposal items from their flights as personal mementos. A truly incredible piece of lunar history. RR Auction COA.
