Charles.M.'Charlie' Duke Jnr ' Apollo 16 - 10th Person to walk on the Moon ' Astronauts Signed Photograph Autograph £125.00
This is a hand signed Colour NASA photograph 10" x 8" by the American Astronaut who during the Apollo mission became the Tenth and youngest person to walk on the surface of the Moon. I received this through the mail back in the 1980's and inadvertently placed the photograph in an adhesive photograph album so the photo is attached to the thick card page which I removed from the book. This really doesn't detract from what is a highly prized and collectable piece.
