Apollo 15 Flown fabric American flag carried to the moon

03 Apr

Fantastic flown fabric American flag carried to the moon on Apollo 15, 5.75 x 4, affixed to a 9.25 x 11.25 presentation certificate signed in black felt tip by Dave Scott, Al Worden, and Jim Irwin. The certificate also bears an affixed embroidered Apollo 15 mission patch and a caption beneath the flag, “This flag was flown aboard the first extended scientific exploration of the moon.” Also includes an ALS by Jim Irwin, one page, 8 x 11.25, NASA letterhead, August 14, 1971, in full: “It was good to see you again. Hope you enjoyed the show! I had the pleasure of carrying your flag to the moon and back. This will authenticate that the enclosed flag flew to the moon on Apollo 15.” Matted and framed side-by-side with a clipped magazine photo of the launch to an overall size of 21.5 x 15.5. In fine condition, with toning to edges, and the signatures and Irwin’s writing just a shade light. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
