Lot 4003

A remarkable lunar meteorite lot, including: a fantastic full slice of the Northwest Africa (NWA) 11303 lunar meteorite, weighing 19.3 grams and measuring approximately 84 mm x 60 mm x 2 mm, comprised of lunar feldspathic regolith breccia, identified by by Drs. Irving and Kuehner at the University of Washington; a small glass vial containing a sample of lunar meteorite dust; and a color 11 x 8.5 certificate of authenticity signed in silver ink by Apollo 16 moonwalker Charlie Duke and Geoff Notkin, the star of TV’s Meteorite Men. Includes two additional certificates of authenticity from Notkin's company, Aerolite Meteorites Inc. Charlie Duke and John Young collected 211 pounds of lunar rock and soil samples during their Apollo 16 EVAs. This is therefore an exceptional set that pairs the autograph of an astronaut who collected moon rocks during his mission with the rare opportunity to own actual pieces of the moon that arrived here as meteorites. An exceptional lot of lunar collectibles.

Estimate: $4000-$6000
