Lot 9434: Ring-bound checklist entitled "Apollo 15, LM Lunar Surface Checklist, Part No SKB32100115-363, S/N 1003," notated below in black felt tip, "LM Mockup Copy, Apollo 16," 6 x 8, containing typical checklist data and instructions for lunar surface operations. One page has a revised section pasted in, and nine photos of moon rock samples are included at the end. General wear and some toning and soiling to the cover, otherwise fine condition. Rather then initiating a completely new lunar surface checklist for Apollo 16, NASA took the prior 'J' mission checklist from Apollo 15 and made handwritten adjustment's prior to generating the actual Apollo 16 checklist. There is a high probability the crew would have stepped through the mock-up to confirm all was correct prior to the formal adjusted checklist going to print. An uncommon, scientific-oriented Apollo offering, with captivating and seldom encountered original moon rock photographs.
