Apollo 15 lunar map offered from Dave Scott's collection

A flown topographical map of the Moon used aboard the Apollo 15 Lunar Rover could beat $25,000 at RR Auction.

The lot is consigned by Apollo 15 commander Dave Scott, who has been selling off his phenomenal collection for some time.

The map shows part of the Moon's Hadley Apennine region

The watch he wore during the Apollo 15 mission set a new world record for a piece of astronaut memorabilia when it sold for $1.6m last year.

Scott writes in a letter of provenance: "This Contour Map… consists of a section of the Hadley Apennine region on the Moon with contour lines depicting the relative height above the base altitude of the Moon as well the planned route of the Lunar Roving Vehicle traverse during the first of three EVAs on Apollo 15…

"This map was mounted on the Rover throughout the three days of surface excursions to be readily available…

"The Map contains traces of lunar dust surface and was exposed to the temperatures extremes, radiation, and Solar Wind on the surface of the Moon."

Other items offered in the sale include a flown Apollo 15 sample containment bag, also from Scott's collection.

It's offered with an identical estimate of $25,000 and up.

The auction will close on July 13.
