Next working day dispatch
This pen has been made using Space flown Kapton foil from the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon.
The small and very rare piece of Gold Kapton Foil is set in resin with the actual artwork of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the Foil is the small section in the above picture set in the white circle.
This Gold Thermal protective foil was used for the Command Module on reentry to Earth and removed after splashdown.
The piece we have is a small section that was often used for presentation purposes and was given to Bill Whipkey, a NASA employee in 1969.
Bill identified the bag of Kapton foil he had to Sandy Clarkson, the Goldberg Auctioneers as part of the Apollo 11 CM prior to his sad passing.
Also in the bag was a copy of his hand written notation "A-11" confirming all above.
Martin has been working on getting this ultra rare material for nearly 2 years and is very limited.
