The seller offers no evidence the now encapsulated item offered as eBay item 131079375597 is associated with Pad 39 or even Project Apollo (the original Superior lot description does not substantiate such a linkage).
The presence of a NASA stamp only suggests this drawer which appears to be part of an FDMA microwave assembly was associated with telecommunications infrastructure at one of the NASA facilities (with application in the 70's). Having Duke sign the piece does not validate Apollo affiliation.

I agree. Here is a 2009 cS thread in which I asked about my identical item, which I had bought for about $15.
cS members were able to tell me enough to say that there is no way it was "used by NASA at Launch Pad 39."
