Description


Impressive flown American flag carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Endeavor during the Apollo 15 mission, 17.5 x 11.75, signed in the lower right corner in blue ballpoint by Dave Scott with his first initial, “D,” adding “A-15, CSM, Aug. 71.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the extra-large…United States flag included with this letter is from my personal collection and was flown in lunar orbit for six days aboard the Command and Service Module (CSM), Endeavor, during Apollo 15, July 26-August 7, 1971.” Flown with CMP Al Worden during the Endeavor’s six days in lunar orbit, this exceptional flag orbited the moon a total of 74 times, and now exists as a patriotic extension of one of the Apollo program’s most scientifically rewarding missions. Additionally, flown flags of such prodigious size remain rare and highly coveted by collectors.
