Very rare Apollo 13 Mission Button 1970 - Original not a reproduction or re-issue. This is exactly like the one shown in photo 12. Gene Kranz Nasa Chief of Flight Control Division wore a button like this one. The mission of Apollo 13, this is not his button. The 1995 Apollo 13 movie made the home made white vest and the mission button iconic.
Photo 12 is just to show the display of the Smithsonian. Exhibit, with Gene Kranz vest and button.
This listing has nothing to do with those items and is only for the item as shown in photo 1. Item to the button in the Smithsonian Museum, but I can not attribute it to any particular Nasa employee. I live about 5 to 8 miles from Nasa Control in Houston, and I have. This from a collector in my area. I believe this is a rare and very low production item.
Only made available to flight control division. Therefore I will not entertain any low ball offers. This button is in Fine to Very Fine condition.
Because of the condition and rarity, this is the price justification. See the back of this item. Replicas have very different construction and materials. 0.6cm x 5.1cm (1/4in depth x 2in diameter). I have a few other Nasa items, please check my other listings.
