I am trying to find out where is the missing guidance and navigation system from Apollo command module 011 (CM-011) flown on AS-202.

I have found out that after the flight, CM-011 was returned to North American Aviation, where it was decommissioned. I know that the QUA was removed and sent back to the manufacturer Kollisman Instruments. The QUA, which was stamped in yellow epoxy ink "Flight 202," recently sold at RRAuction for over $90,000. This is the only item I have ever seen surface from AS-202.

The guidance and navigation system from this flight is very historic since it was the first time the Apollo Guidance and Navigation System flew! I would like to know who bought the QUA to see if they know more.

I know from Eldon C. Hall's book that the Block 1 Model 100 AGC was number 117. I am doing research trying to solve the mystery of this mission's hardware. Is there any where records would have been kept as to where it went?
