Description


Printed Beta cloth American flag, 2.5 x 1.75, carried on the lunar surface during all three Apollo 15 moonwalks. Flag is affixed to an 11.5 x 15.5 presentation mount, with a printed caption underneath stating, “This flag was carried on the lunar surface throughout the geological exploration of the Hadley-Apennine, Apollo 15, July 26–August 7, 1971.” Also affixed to the mount is a 9.75 x 7.25 color photo of Dave Scott saluting the flag on the lunar surface, signed and inscribed to Dave Scott's father-in-law at the time, Gen. Issac Ott, in black felt tip on the mount, “To Ike, with all the best and many thanks for all your contributions to the success of this flight, with both airplanes and daughters. Dave Scott,” adding “Aug. 2, 1971,” under the photo; and an extremely rare Apollo 15 ‘Silver XV’ crew patch. Presentation is framed to an overall size of 14.5 x 18.5. Patch and printed caption partially separated from mount, uniform fading to printed caption, and a bit of light foxing to the mount, otherwise fine condition. While at least one full flag kit was carried into lunar orbit on this mission, flags directly from the lunar surface are exceptionally rare. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
