Apollo 8 FLOWN heatshield presentation

First time mankind left the gravity of earth and watched an "earthrise".
Apollo 8 became one of the most famous Apollo missions circling around the moon on Christmas 1968 where the astronauts James Lovell, Frank Borman and Bill Anders read from the bible.

This presentation bears a part of the flown heatshield of Apollo 8 and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity plus a fact sheet about Apollo 8.

The source of this heatshield is a larger block formerly encased in lucite and given to NASA workers and VIPs as a recognition of their work in the Apollo program. Flown artifacts from Apollo 8 are very rare and high in demand. 

This edition is limited to 50 presentations only. COA on backside. 

Please note : Due to the nature of the source artifact each presentation differs slightly in shape and color.
