FLOWN COMMAND MODULE RIGHT HAND WINDOW SHADE.
Flown metal window shade fitted for placement over the large right hand window located toward the aft crew compartment of the Command Module. A black outer seal on the window facing side allows the 13 by 13½ inch shade to fit snugly to the window via existing swing clips mounted around window frame. Large print identification wording reads "RH SIDE AFT" along the bottom edge with ID numbers at the top edge that read "V36-770034-12," "V26-770034-8 06362 AAK0335." There are three inspection stamps plus a 1-inch square velcro hook affixed at the center.

This window shade was carried and used aboard the SL-3 crew Command Module commanded by Alan Bean during July and August 1973. The shade logged over 59 days in space while in Earth orbit. Included are copies of documents listing the NASA artifact number (2294) being from Command Module (S/C # 117) for the transfer to the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) and deaccession papers from NASM.
The window facing side has been signed and inscribed by ALAN BEAN with "CDR, SL-3."
