From the South Pole to lunar orbit
Description  

Flown American flag, 5.5 x 4, carried to the South Pole in 1970, and flown to lunar orbit during the Apollo 15 mission. Flag is signed on three white stripes in blue ink, “Dave Scott, carried to South Pole, Antarctica, Jan 9–15, 1970. Flown to the moon aboard Apollo 15, July 26–Aug 7, 1971.” Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott stating, in part, “I hereby certify that the United States flag included with this letter…is from my personal collection and was carried to the South Pole, Antarctica…and then flown in lunar orbit for six days aboard the CSM Endeavour during Apollo 15…I was a member of the NASA contingent of six on an official visit to Antarctica from 9 through 15 January 1970…Throughout the journey, I carried the attached United States flag in the pocket of my parka as a symbol of exploration…This South Pole/Apollo 15 US flag has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” In fine condition. Flags carried on any Apollo mission are highly desirable, with this particular flag making an extra trip to the bottom of the world. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
