While relaxing and reading the paper the other night (OK, it was a copy of the San Jose Mercury from July 21, 1969 that my wonderfull wife found for me at a garage sale), I saw 2 different mentions of when the words " light..." were heard at Mission Control, a member of the Grumman team went running through the press room handing out handfulls of blue/green quarter-sized pins with the words LUNAR CONTACT on them. These pins were intended to look like the lunar contact light on the LM instrument panel. It is mentioned that Grumman had 4000 of these made up. Have any of you seen any of these pins? Do you have one? these sound cool. I was curious how many were still out there, what they may go for these days and where I could get one. Thanks.
