Description


Flown fabric American flag carried into lunar orbit during the Apollo 8 mission. The flag, 6 x 4, is affixed to a 9.5 x 11.5 presentation sheet with printed text, "This flag was carried aboard the first manned lunar orbit spacecraft, Apollo 8, December 21-27, 1968," which is signed and inscribed below in black felt tip, “To Al, with appreciation from three friends, Frank Borman,” “Bill Anders,” and “James Lovell.” Archivally framed with UV-resistant glass and acid-free matting to an overall size of 18 x 20. In fine condition, with light toning to each corner of the flag from adhesive on the reverse. The recipient of the flag, Al Bishop, was an aerospace public relations specialist at NASA whose specially designed cachet of 'Bishop' insurance covers, printed specifically for the crew, their families and friends, have become prized collectables amongst the space and philatelic communities.
