Description

United Nations flag carried to the moon with Apollo 16

Very rare flown United Nations flag carried to the moon on Apollo 16, measuring 11.75 x 7.75, encapsulated in a tamper-proof sleeve. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Susy Young, the wife of the late Command Module Pilot John Young, in part: "I hereby certify that the flag of the United Nations that accompanies this letter was flown to the Moon aboard the Apollo 16 mission April 16-27, 1972. It has been a part of John W. Young’s personal collection since returning from the mission." In fine condition. A decidedly uncommon flown flag from the collection of moonwalker John Young.
