Flown Snoopy Lapel Pin made of sterling silver, approximately ½ inch tall. The well-known Peanuts comic strip character Snoopy is portrayed wearing a space suit and helmet. With a Typed Letter Signed by FRED HAISE.

Snoopy was adopted as the official NASA Manned Flight Awareness (MFA) mascot early in the Apollo Program. These pins were awarded personally by an Astronaut to workers throughout the Apollo Program, both within NASA as well as contractors.... This 'Silver Snoopy' has been in my personal space artifact collection since 1970."
