Flown printed fabric American flag, 5.75 x 3.75, flown aboard Apollo 10 during its orbit around the moon. Flag is affixed by its corners to a 9 x 12 certificate stating “This flag traveled on Apollo X with the first LM to the moon, Apollo X, May 18–26, 1969,” and is inscribed in black felt tip by Gene Cernan, “To Gene & Kay—Our sincere & personal best wishes to our good friends—The Crew of Apollo X,” and signed “Tom Stafford,” “John Young,” and “Gene Cernan.” In fine condition, with four small squares of toning to corners of flag from adhesive on reverse and some mild toning to edges of certificate. With all its mission objectives achieved, Apollo 10, with this flag aboard, set the stage for the first manned moon landing just two months later.
