It really makes me wonder what Aurora is telling these poor people their "collections" are worth. Each catalog that Aurora mails out has autopen signatures listed as authentic astronaut signatures. You just have to wonder if they even bother to look at the items these people bring in. You also have to wonder if they ever bother to look at the items they put in their catalog! It's too bad that these are the people that are looked upon as "experts" in the space collecting field by the media.

Hi Guys,
It is a real shame aboutthe Searstown Mall-
in which tyhe new owners want such a great price.
Maybe selling off some of the museums treasure will help out. I myself attenmded this AIR AND SPACE SHOWin Florida at this Mall in May 2004. Met up with many collectSPACE people, we all saw what a marvellous collection was on display, real valuable items-which were housed in glass cases. Togther-if it wasnt for Charlie Mars
and Al Hallonquist for getting this up and running.we all will have missed a site-no-one will ever forget.So I say very good luck
to everyone concered, and I sincerely hope that the monies raised will help someway in keeping this wonderful museum going- Hope to be there another year- thanks to Charlie,
and {UNCLE AL] for such a delight-glad we came over. All the best to everyone concered. And Karen-if you read this- best of luck,
Regards to all,
from Brenda and Ted.
