Accompanied by a letter of provenance signed by Bean and Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon, in full: “Flown with Conrad, Gordon, and Bean to the Moon aboard Yankee Clipper and Intrepid, November, 1969. This Beta Cloth Bag was used by Pete and me to transfer data and checklists from the Command Module to the Lunar Module prior to landing on the Moon.” This sizable flown Beta bag once contained an assortment of essential data charts and checklists instrumental in the success of Conrad and Bean’s day-long survey of the lunar surface.
