#6262 - Dave Scott’s Apollo 15 Lunar Orbit and South Pole Flown Flag Estimate: $10,000+

From the South Pole to the Moon

Flown 5.75 x 4 American flag carried to the South Pole from January 9-15, 1970, and then flown to lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Endeavor during the Apollo 15 mission from July 26-August 7, 1971, signed by Dave Scott with his first initial on the bottom white stripe in blue ink, "D," adding, "SP, A-15." In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott, in part: "I hereby certify that the United States flag included with this letter…was carried to the South Pole, Antarctica…and then flown in lunar orbit for six days aboard the CSM Endeavor during Apollo 15…The symbol 'SP' means that the flag was carried in my pocket to the South Pole…and 'A-15' means that during Apollo 15 this flag was carried aboard the Command and Service Module (CSM) Endeavor…This is one of only several unique flags that have made the journey to both the South Pole of the Earth and the orbit of the Moon." Flags carried on any Apollo mission are highly desirable, with this particular flag making an extra trip to Earth's southernmost point during Scott's 1970 NASA research trip to Antarctica. From the personal collection of Dave Scott.
