Flown chart from Bean's Skylab sleeping compartment

Alan Bean's flown "1st Prototype Skylab Flight Chart" showing a map of the world, 16.5 x 9.75, signed and flight-certified in black felt tip, "I mounted this chart in my sleeping compartment during our 59 day Skylab mission, Alan Bean, CDR SL-3." Includes a color glossy 9.5 x 7.25 of Bean reading while on the Skylab mission, this chart seen on the wall in the background, signed in black felt tip, "Alan Bean, CDR SL-3." Beautifully matted and framed together to an overall size of 23 x 25. In fine condition. From the personal collection of Alan Bean and accompanied by a signed letter of provenance. As commander of the second manned Skylab mission, Alan Bean spent 59 days on America's first space station; during this time, he took part in performing important scientific experiments in areas including medical activities, solar observations, and Earth resources. Posted inside Commander Bean's sleeping compartment, this map made 858 Earth orbits and traveled 24.5 million miles—an amazing flown piece with rock-solid provenance.
