Lot 9396: Exceptionally rare flown .5 x .75 swatch of Kapton foil from the outer reflective skin of the Apollo 14 command module Kitty Hawk, affixed to an 8.5 x 5 certificate of authenticity from former NASA employee Terry Slezak. In fine condition. Deemed the rarest of flown Apollo 14 'skin,' NASA salvaged the entirety of this reflective Kapton foil for micrometeorite testing. Slezak, a member of the decontamination team at the Manned Space Center's lunar receiving lab, was able to obtain this swatch from an area shielded by the closed hatch, a distinction which accounts for some of the foil's peculiar 'burnt' sheen.
