Description: APOLLO LUNAR MODULE RING BRACKET
Cut from a solid block of Titanium (but not as a replicator test item), this ring with threaded interior groove and bracket mounts was to have cradled parts for the LM's sixteen Reaction Control Rockets. It passed quality control with a bold red ink stamp numbered LDW320M10729-1, and was tagged with a Grumman card (still attached) designating it as a "SPARE," available for selection for launch to the moon. It is among the spare parts listed in the LM-5 CARR Reports for LM-5 (Eagle). Had the Eagle's installed mounting been dented or otherwise damaged, this could have gone to the moon (where it would now still be orbiting as part of Eagle's ascent stage).
