[i]The consignor has told us, according to his memory and the fact that this unit was stored in his (post-retirement) "Apollo 11" storage box, that this unit was removed from Apollo 11 after the flight and given to him by NASA personnel to be display mounted for presentation purposes. It was never retrieved and he stored it in his office safe awaiting retrieval while he was at NASA. When he retired he was told to clean out his safe and to throw away anything not currently needed. Instead of throwing this piece away, he decided to keep it as a souvenir of his years at NASA. He subsequently told one of the Apollo 11 astronauts about the piece and asked him if he wanted it. When told no, he put it away again until now.[/i]
