Description


Outstanding flown American flag, 5.75 x 3.75, 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 in my suit during all three EVAs, Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR"; it is also marked with a lowercase Greek delta symbol ("δ") on the reverse, signifying its ascent of the Mons Hadley Delta. Includes a glossy 10 x 8 photograph of Scott standing in front of the LRV, annotated and signed in black felt tip, "Your flag was carried here!! Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR," with his pocket circled. Also accompanied by a photo of Dave Scott holding the flag, and a signed letter of provenance, in part: "In commemoration of the first extended scientific exploration of the Moon, including the first use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), I carried this US flag in the pocket of my Apollo A7L-B EVA Spacesuit during our nearly three-day stay on the Moon. This flag was carried to the highest point on Hadley Delta mountain during the second day of our geological exploration. The flag is therefore marked with a 'δ' on the lower right corner of the reverse side." In very fine condition. A choice surface-flown artifact boasting excellent provenance from one of the Apollo program's twelve moonwalkers.
