Description

Cross cufflinks direct from the Ocean of Storms

Alan Bean’s lunar flown pair of sterling silver cufflinks by James Avery, each 1 x .5, with three gothic crosses against a black inlay, engraved on the reverse with the JA three-candled candelabrum. In fine condition. Accompanied by a lengthy handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in part: "I hereby certify that the accompanying pair of three-cross cufflinks traveled with me in our command module ‘Yankee Clipper’ to the moon. I then transferred them to our lunar module ‘Intrepid’ for descent to the Ocean of Storms. Alan Bean, Apollo 12 LMP, November 14–24, 1969.” A remarkably appealing set of lunar flown cufflinks from the mission’s own moon-walking LMP.
