I first noticed this sticker afixed to several locations of the original Apollo 11 Mobile Quarantine Unit on display at the Smithsonians Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Centre near Washington D.C.

I spent a considerable amount of time examining the Mobile Quarantine Facility.     It was a big deal for me standing beside the old converted trailer imagining President Nixon laughing with the Apollo 11 crew through the back window.   I vividly recall thinking to myself what a gem having a copy of that sticker in my collection would be.   I’m tickled to have this one now.
