If anyone can tell me any kind of information they may have on any items I list here I would greatly appreciate it. These items belong to my grandma who acquired them from my great great uncle who worked for North American Rockwell Corp. on the Launch crew for every Apollo except like two or at least I don't have a paper saying he supported it. I'll start with a few items if that's okay to make sure I'm doing this properly then I'll add more items.

I've been trying to sort through some more stuff and take pictures and scan more stuff, my grandma has a few boxes of stuff she recovered that our relatives were just going to throw away after my uncle passed away years ago. We've been trying to learn what everything is and we've hit a brick wall and decided to reach out for help.

I have two big binders of pictures, patches with certificates, stickers, lots of personal Kodak pictures of Apollos and the launch teams. NASA books, certificate of achievements, diagrams, spinoff magazines, Apollo launch negatives, shuttle launch negatives, newspapers, NASA guest badges, NASA tour cards, flight passes, shuttle tile, lots and lots of stuff.

So if there's anything that sounds worth looking more into please let me know. Thank you.

Looks like your great great uncle was quite the pack rat! In general, any paper ephemera (NASA Facts publications, press releases, newspapers, magazines etc.) have no real high monetary value. But the publication scanned in your first few images showing Snoopy, NASA's mascot for the Manned Flight Awareness program - that would be a prime document to have in any collection. I've not seen one like it before.

Also, any certificates/presentations with 'flown' patches and/or flags are more valuable. NASA launch site badges/passes vary with the mission involved. Any original NASA Kodak prints with red ID numbers can be more desirable. The Apollo 17 launch postal cover looks like it has pre-printed signatures of the crew, but the personal letter signed by them looks authentic.

I'll leave the rest of the cS members to give their opinions, but I do recommend you inventory and start to 'preserve' any items that are not in protective sleeves, like the photos. Good luck with your project!

If you have any pins, medals, medallions, coins I would be happy to help in this area especially if they have flown metal. Here is my site as it has a lot of info on these type of medals and pins.
