Astronaut's scissors get $100,000 at auction

DALLAS (AP) — Scissors used by astronaut Alan Bean when he walked on the moon sold for $100,000 at an auction of space gear.

Bean's collection of two-dozen items brought in about $625,000 when offered Wednesday by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions. A pen used by the Apollo 12 lunar module pilot during his 1969 moonwalk sold for about $53,000 while a cloth waist strap with traces of moon dust sold for about $94,000.

Heritage space memorabilia consultant Howard Weinberger says items that have been on the moon with an astronaut are "by far the most highly sought after and significant."

The items were offered as part of Heritage's space exploration auction, which also included a microform copy of the Bible flown to the moon's surface aboard Apollo 14. That sold for $75,000.
