Results of the Christie's Space Exploration Auction

Items are presented by lot order. Two lots were withdrawn prior to the auction beginning. The notation "Pass" indicates items which did not reach the set reserve and therefore were not sold.

Christie's added a 15% buyer's commission to each lot, not reflected in the realized prices cited below.

NOTE: The realized prices listed below were recorded live by collectSPACE during the auction. While every effort was made to insure accurate reporting, this list may contain errors. To verify the official results, please contact Christie's East.
