Just acquired this lucite [?] that is shaped like the Apollo 8 Command Module, with a piece of the heat shield embedded.

I googled but only saw one that was similar.

Has a chip and some missing paint, but a nice large piece of heat shield. North American Rockwell contractor's gift/commemorative piece? I'm clueless.

Any information on this is appreciated. I have two photos here.
