The Harold Hill Collection
Apollo 8 Recovery Zippo

[Click image above to enlarge]

A 2.25˙ Zippo-brand metal lighter (without fluid) etched on its front with a color illustration of the prime recovery ship for the Apollo 8 mission, the U.S.S. Yorktown. On the reverse is inscribed, ˙Apollo 8 Recovery, First Manned, Lunar Orbital, Dec. 27, 1968˙. Included is the original box on which Harold Hill wrote his initials (H.H.H.).

Harold H. Hill was a biomedical administrator at NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center/Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas until he retired in 1982 with more than 20 years of service. During the Gemini and Apollo programs, Hill was responsible for overseeing the transfer and setup of medical supplies between NASA facilities, including the prime recovery ships used to rescue the astronauts and their spacecraft from the ocean after splashdown. In November 2002, Harold Hill passed away at age 84.

collectSPACE is honored to present for sale memorabilia and autographs collected by Harold Hill during his career on the behalf of his family.
