Many years ago - probably close to 20 - I went on the KSCVC "Then and Now" tour, and purchased this at the CCAFS Museum shop. I think it cost a whole dollar!

Here is a larger image.

Is there a better way to display this, rather than just attached to the card? The card is about 8.5 x 3.75 inches, so it would make a rather large lucite for a small fragment.

Does this have any value as a collectible? I doubt it, since several years later they still had them, so they must have made a bunch of them.

In my opinion, I think it's very valuable, to me at least (I do have one).

Thanks, Robert! I must not have been hanging around cS regularly back then, because I never saw those threads.

That is very interesting and in my opinion very valuable. I would like to get hold of something like this myself.

Just listed (here on collectSPACE) a similar Complex 26 gantry presentation and one from Complex 19. I'll give rgarner first dibs since he already expressed an interest.
