Alan Bean signed 16'' x 20'' lunar photo, with a vivid handwritten description by Bean of what was taking place on the moon the moment this iconic photo was taken. Complete text of Bean's inscription reads, ''Working On The Moon Inside My Space Suit Was Hard Work / Near my right leg is our tool carrier that has much of the equipment that we will use to explore the moon. There is a hammer, a number of core tubes, sample bags, a scoop and a variety of other geological tools. You can see my cuff checklist and watch on my left arm. Pete [Conrad] is visible in my visor as he takes this portrait of me on the Ocean of Storms. As you can see, both legs are getting dirty with moon dust. Alan Bean, Apollo XII LMP [Lunar Module Pilot]''. Photo measures 16'' x 20''. Some minimal smudging on inscription, otherwise near fine.
