Description


Astounding flown American flag, 6 x 4, carried to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Falcon during the Apollo 15 mission and stowed in the pocket of Commander Dave Scott's space suit during all three lunar surface EVAs. The flag is signed and flight-certified in blue ink, "Carried to the Hadley Delta Mountain, Surface of Moon, Apollo 15, Dave Scott CDR.” Includes a signed letter of authenticity from Scott, which states, in part, "I hereby certify that the United States flag included with this letter was carried in the pocket of my A7L-B spacesuit…during each of our three EVAs at Hadley Apennine site, including the highest point reached on Hadley Delta Mountain…This special United States flag has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth." A small image identifying the pocket in which Scott stored the flag is printed at the top of the letter. Both flag and letter are archivally double-matted and framed with an engraved plaque and a large photo of Scott on the moon, with circled flag pocket, to an overall size of 21.5 x 29.75. In fine condition.
