This artifact is a model of the Apollo 14 Lunar Module Antares.  It was presented to Apollo 14 Commander Alan Shepard in 1971 by Grumman Aerospace Corporation upon the successful completion of the mission to Fra Mauro.

The high quality model is constructed of aluminum.  It is placed on a wooden base with a presentation plaque that reads: "Presented to Captain Alan B. Shepard, USN, Commander Apollo 14 By Grumman Aerospace Corporation.  Also affixed to the wooden base is a mission patch from the Apollo 14 mission.

Before his passing, Astronaut Shepard gifted this model to the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.  He left specific instructions that it should be sold to raise funds for the foundation.  The foundation placed the model up for auction at their annual fund raising auction in New Jersey on August 14, 2005.

The Earth To The Moon Air & Space Museum acquired this artifact from the ASF auction.
