Lot 9435: Ring-bound Apollo 16 checklist entitled "Revision A, LM Lunar Surface Checklist," March 13, 1972, signed on the front cover in black felt tip, "Charlie Duke, LMP." Also notated in another hand in the upper right, "LMS2, KSC." Much of the checklist concerns the preparation for the three surface EVAs. General wear and some staining to edges, otherwise fine condition. In total, Duke spent over twenty hours on the lunar surface conducting EVAs, and though unclear whether he used this exact checklist for his training, it certainly represents the extreme detail the crew took to ready for their mission.
