SYMBOLS OF THE APOLLO X LM CREW—SIGNED.
Two "Snoopy" astronaut dolls, produced in China by Determined Distributions of San Francisco for United Feature Syndicate, 1969. Made from plastic and textile, each 10 inches tall. Both with their original display boxes.

The Peanuts comic strip character Snoopy in a space suit and helmet. Snoopy was adopted by NASA with the full blessing of creator Charles Schulz as the Manned Flight Awareness (MFA) Program mascot. The program used Snoopy as a "spokesperson" to emphasize such topics as flight safety and good quality control during spacecraft manufacturing.
The Apollo X LM crew of Stafford and Cernan named their Lunar Module Snoopy partly to bring greater recognition to the MFA program. As symbols of their flight, the back of the dolls' helmets have been inscribed and signed by these astronauts. Apollo X Command Module Pilot John Young named his spacecraft "Charlie Brown."
One doll helmet is INSCRIBED and SIGNED "Snoopy, LM-4 Call Sign, Tom Stafford, Apollo X Cdr, May 69"; the other "Snoopy LM-4, Gene Cernan, Apollo X LMP."
