Apollo Flown Toothbrush

An Apollo flown toothbrush is rare at auction with only a handful ever coming up for sale.  You would guess that most were thrown away because who wants a used toothbrush anyway?  Well, apparently someone at our auction did and paid almost $12,000 for one.  BTW, the provenance couldn’t have been better.  It came directly from the sister of Apollo 13 astronaut, Jack Swigert.  Here is the description and picture:

Jack Swigert’s Apollo 13 Flown Toothbrush

Jack Swigert Apollo 13 flown, personally owned NASA Oral B-40 clear toothbrush. Toothbrush measures 6.25” with some toning and wear. Housed in a plastic case. Very good. With an LOA from Swigert’s sister certifying that it is Apollo 13 flown.  Sold for $11,794.
