Limited edition presentation of a small triangular swatch of moondust soiled Velcro, approximately .5 x .5 x .75, affixed to a color satin-finish 10 x 8 photo of the Apollo 16 LM and rover on the moon’s surface, titled at the top, “Swatch of moondust stained Velcro from the cue card ‘LM Comm Modes’ used in the Lunar Module Orion on the Descartes Highlands, April 21-24, 1972.” Reverse is numbered “#14 Special edition, Florian Noller.”

Accompanied by a color photocopy of both sides of the LM Cue Card titled “LM Comm Modes,” picturing the 1” x 2” moondust stained Velcro from which the triangular portion here offered was removed and the following statement from Charles M. Duke, Jr.: “Flown to the Lunar Surface aboard Apollo 16, landed on April 20, 1972. Charles M. Duke, Jr Apollo 16 LMP.” Also accompanied by a copy of a Letter of Certification handwritten and signed by Duke for the flown cue card, which reads, in part: “It is my opinion that the dark smudges on the border of the Velcro hook include traces of lunar dust. This dust, which we brought in with us from the lunar surface, was on many items that were exposed in the cabin.” Also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Florian Noller.
