Description


Flown gold-tone tie tack pin carried on the Apollo 12 mission, approximately .75″ in diameter, depicting an American flag against a lunar background, pinned to an off-white 6.25 x 4.25 handwritten and signed provenance note by Charles Conrad, in full: “This gold lapel pin is one of 50 flown to the lunar surface during the flight of Apollo XII. Alan Bean and I were allowed to keep 25. This pin was on the lunar surface for over 31 hours on November 19–20, 1969. There is a special engraving on the back of the pin. It is from my personal collection. Charles Conrad, Jr., Commander, Apollo XII.” The raised text on the reverse of the pin reads: “Flown to the moon by an intrepid crew, Apollo XII, November 1969, Conrad-Gordon-Bean.” In fine condition. A spectacular piece flown on man’s second journey to the lunar surface enhanced by its superior handwritten provenance. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
