I have many original NASA artifacts dating from the early 1960's through the early 1970's. These were purchased from the estate of Marie Coe (1920-2012). She was one of the two electron microscope specialists for NASA during this time period.

The collection includes some parts and pieces of the Apollo missions that were examined by her and over 100 large glass plates/slides of investigations into mission damages or mission failures from the early 1960's through the early 1970's. I also have many moon shot photos developed by her as well as other NASA collectibles.

The Smithsonian was interested in the data involving the apes that were in the early missions. These items had been previously donated to them at their request.

I am interested in getting an estimate of value. Any assistance that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

"Parts and pieces of the Apollo missions" could be quite valuable, especially if the provenance is good. I'm going to post some of my pictures on cS later myself, so if you'd like to e-mail me some good clear photos, I could add them to this forum if you like.
