So while browsing through some old bits, I came across this. I don't remember buying it but it is quite vague. Anyone know anything about it and whether or not it is what it says it is?

Item 637A in this 1994 catalog is listed under "Apollo 13 Flown"; the catalog states:
FLOWN MICROFILM CANISTER. Small cylinder (3/4") containing microfilm of NASA's Manned Flight Awareness book. Rare. Estimated value: $400-500.
I can send you a photocopy of this page 114 of the catalog, or I can scan the page and mail that. It is strange that the certificate states Apollo 14 where the catalog lists Apollo 13.

Thank you for posting this - I wonder if anyone else has any information. This has confused matters somewhat!

I would like to think this piece of what could be historical material isn't quite dead and wasted... anyone got any hope for me?
