Item specifics

Country of Manufacture: United States  

This remarkable space program collectable is a large part of the Kapton blanket that covered the base of the Apollo 16 lunar module. It consists of approximately 24 layers of Kapton (see photo #4). On one side of this piece is a strip of black Velcro used to mount the blanket. Also on this side is a connector of some type (see the darker area in photo #1 in the lower right corner). The other side (photo #2) is gold Kapton with orange tape connecting pieces.

This piece measures 7" x 9 3/4".

On the side with the black Velcro, there is a missing portion of the gold first layer. In photo #3 I've placed a piece of white paper under the first layer to show the missing area. When the white paper is removed it's hard to tell there's a missing area since the next layer is also gold.

This is part of the entire Kapton blanket that was removed from the Apollo 16 lunar module just prior to launch.

This piece comes with copies of the two Grumman work tags indicating the removal of this blanket.

The larger piece that this was taken from was offered for sale in a Superior Galleries space auction about 20 years ago.

This will be a very dramatic piece in your space collection.

I've been a dealer of historic memorabilia and autographs since 1968. I'm a former Director of the UACC and am well-known around the world as a reputable dealer.
