Apollo 14, 1971, 3-D "Landing Site" Lunar Topographical Map (28x25") This massive 3-D plastic map is an exact 1:8,000 scale reproduction of the Apollo 14 landing site at Fra Mauro. Produced by the US Army Typographical Command at the request of the Department of Defence, this map was used to familiarize the Apollo astronauts with what they would see when they approached the landing site during landing. The map also gave them a view of the surrounding terrain since they would have mainly tunnel vision during landing. Extensively repaired and with pieces missing in addition to being quite fragile, but an important piece of memorabilia. The various craters and features are not named on this version of the map. This is only the second or third time we have ever seen one of these maps. NOTE: This piece will require special UPS packing and shipping due to size and fragility (the weight is negligible). Domestic sale recommended as we cannot guarantee what customs will do to the piece if shipped overseas.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,500.

Realized $236
