Description

Apollo 7 Flown Hazel Sekac Star

Small gray cloth star flown aboard the first manned Apollo mission, measuring about .75″ across, with the initials “HS” penned in the center. Affixed and laminated to a patriotic 3 x 4.75 presentation card, with gold foil on the bottom ‘carved’ with the flight certification (not in the astronauts’ hands): “Flown on ‘Apollo 7,’ for Hazel Sekal, 10.11.68 10.22.68, Wally, Donn, Walt.” In fine condition, with some rippling and noticeable adhesive to edges of the laminate. Hazel Sekac worked at the Kennedy Space Center with the flight simulators, and, as a personal favor to her (and other KSC workers close to the astronauts), the crew of Apollo 7 flew a number of these cloth stars on the flight, inscribed with the initials of the recipients.
