This contractor model of the Grumman Lunar Module belonged to Apollo 16 moonwalker, Brigadier General Charles Duke.  This model was presented to General Duke after the Apollo 16 mission.  The base of the model has been signed and inscribed by General Duke with "From my collection - Charlie Duke - Apollo 16."

The artifact was consigned by General Duke in the Space and Aviation Autographs and Memorabilia Auction conducted by Odyssey Auctions on March 26th, 1995.  This model was lot number 249 in that auction.

The lot description from the auction catalog stated, "249. Lunar Module Model. An official Grumman model, housed on a glass base from the personal collection of Charles Duke.  Given as a memento to commemorate his lunar mission. Signed by Duke on the base"

The Earth To the Moon Air and Space Museum acquired this artifact in the Odyssey auction.
