Rarely seen oversized American flag, “flown in lunar orbit for 6 days aboard the Apollo 15 Endeavor spaceship”
Description  

Supremely desirable flown flown American flag, 11.5 x 7.75, signed and flight-certified in blue ballpoint by Commander David Scott, “This flag was flown in lunar orbit for 6 days aboard the Apollo 15 Endeavor spaceship, July 26–August 7, 1971. Dave Scott, CDR.” In fine condition, with vertical folds through the center and near the right edge, and some light wrinkling near the edges. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the large United States flag included with this letter…is from my personal collection and flown in lunar orbit for six days aboard the CSM Endeavour during Apollo 15, July 26–August 7, 1971…After orbiting the Moon for a day in preparation for the landing, Jim Irwin and I landed the lunar module ‘Falcon’ on the Moon between Hadley Rille and the Apennine Mountains…During the three days we were on the Moon, Al Worden flew the ‘Endeavor’ solo in lunar orbit…The ‘Falcon’ remained on the lunar surface for 66 hours and 54 minutes, after which we launched and completed a direct rendezvous…and docking with the…‘Endeavor’ in lunar orbit, after which we spent two more days in lunar orbit conducting scientific experiments and photography…This large Apollo 15 US Flag has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” Flown flags are usually considerably smaller than this example, and as a flag of the United States—the first and only nation to put man on the moon—it is one of the most sought-after formats in the hobby. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
