Yes, indeed, some nice stuff. I have a question on lot 234, flown A12 heatshield, signed by Conrad. If this was truely flown would not one side be charred black ? This piece looks pristine, like new, perhaps unflown ?

Based on the lot (234) description alone, the Conrad-signed heat shield segment appears to be unused.

Technically, lot 232, which includes a space shuttle thermal tile, is illegal to sell in London. U.S. State Department regulations prohibit its export outside the country.

Interesting to see the pre-auction estimates. They vary from the reasonable to the unrealistic.
