Apollo 12 astronaut's moon mementos up for auction
[i]The fourth man to walk on the moon is selling a small treasure trove of artifacts he brought back from his lunar voyage.
Apollo 12 lunar module pilot Alan Bean, who with the late Charles "Pete" Conrad achieved the United States' second manned lunar landing in November 1969, has consigned a collection of his moon memorabilia to Heritage Auctions of Dallas, Texas for their May 14 sale.
"When it comes to collecting this [type of] material, pieces that have been on the lunar surface, with an astronaut, are by far the most highly sought after," Howard Weinberger, space memorabilia consultant for Heritage, said. "At every level of this material there is something spectacular and notable in terms of America's lunar program."[/i]
