Description


Charles Conrad’s white In-Flight Coverall Garment used during training for Apollo 12, consisting of both the jacket and pants. The jacket bears his name patch on the left breast, “P. [Pete] Conrad,” an official NASA ‘meatball’ patch on the right, and an American flag patch on the left sleeve. The patch sewn inside the collar area reads: "Coverall Jacket, P/N: BW-1060-002, Size: SS S/N 1035, Subject: P. Conrad, Contract No. NAS 9-8309, Date of Mfg.: 12-9-68,” with a faded red ink notation below, “Class III.” The pants are unsigned and bear a patch sewn inside the waistband reading: "Coverall Trousers, P/N BW-1061-001, Size: SS S/N 1035, Subject: P. Conrad, Contract No.: NAS 9-8309, Date of Mfg.: 12-9-68, Mfg. by: B. Welson Co,” also bearing the ink notation below, “Class III.” In fine condition, with expected wear from use. Accompanied by a modern satin-finish photo of Conrad wearing this, or a very similar ICG suit. The In-Flight Coverall Garment was developed by NASA to offer far more flexibility than the bulky spacesuit, so astronauts changed into these after launch to be more comfortable during their long flight. The Apollo 12 astronauts wore Class III coveralls like this one while training inside the simulators at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston. As a training-worn Apollo ICG from the third man to walk on the moon, this is a truly extraordinary piece. Provenance: The Leon Ford Collection.
