An astonishingly rare relic of what's often referred to as NASA's most successful manned flight ever, this Hasselblad 500 camera — to be auctioned on March 22 — was used by Apollo 15 astronaut Jim Irwin to shoot exactly 299 photos en route to and on the surface of the moon, and is one of only two cameras to ever return to earth from a lunar mission.

While 14 cameras were used on the moon during Apollos 11 through 17, most were left behind in order to take back lunar rocks of equivalent weight instead (they took the film with, of course).
And sure, the estimated $275,000 you'll need to bring this thing home sounds steep, but it also comes with extensive documentation and a selection of photos taken by Irwin himself, assembled by a dude who literally wrote the book on it, Hasselblad and the Moon.
