Description

“Flown to the lunar surface aboard Antares, Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP”

Fantastic flown American flag carried on board Apollo 14, 6 x 4, signed and flight-certified in black ballpoint by Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, in full: "This flag was flown to the lunar surface aboard Antares, Feb. 5, 1971. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP." The flag is fittingly displayed with a 10 x 8 color satin-finish photograph of the Apollo 14 LMP on the lunar surface, nicely signed and inscribed by Mitchell in black felt tip, and matted and framed to an overall size of 13 x 16. In fine condition, with the flag affixed to the mat. Accompanied by two photos of Mitchell taken at the time of signing; one for the flag, and the other for the photograph. Representing the apogee of American pioneering spirit, flown flags are among the most coveted relics from the legendary Apollo missions, with even further import given to those which reached the lunar surface rather than remaining in orbit. Having alighted upon the moon aboard the lunar module Antares, this immensely desirable flag is an exceptionally rare item direct from the personal archives of Mitchell, the sixth man on the moon. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
