CHARLES CONRAD'S signed provenance manuscript note reads: "This 'Interim Stowage Strap,' Part Number SEB 33100015-302, Serial Number 1138 was flown to the lunar aboard the Lunar Module Intrepid during the flight of Apollo XII. It was used to secure lunar exploration equipment and logged over 31 hours on the moon's surface during November 19 – 20, 1969. The strap is listed on page 63 of the Apollo XII stowage list. It has been in my personal collection since I returned from the moon."

After Apollo XII's Lunar Module Intrepid landed on the Moon, astronauts Conrad and Bean conducted two extensive surface explorations. Spending over 8 hours out on the surface, they accumulated a large amount of lunar dust on their space suits and flight equipment. During their 31-hour surface stay, this strap was exposed to lunar dust when handled by the LM crew inside Intrepid.

A copy of page 63 from the Apollo XII stowage list is included, together with a typed analysis of the embedded lunar material, being written on Conrad's personal stationery.
