Description


Flown printed fabric American flag, 6 x 4, carried on board Apollo 15, and carried in the pocket of Dave Scott’s space suit during all three EVAs during the mission. Signed on two white lines in blue ink, “Carried to the Hadley Delta Mountain, Surface of Moon, Apollo 15. Dave Scott CDR,” with a small ink notation in the lower right corner on the reverse of the flag. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott stating, in part, “I hereby certify that the United States flag included with this letter was carried in the pocket of my A7L-B spacesuit during Apollo 15…carried during each of our three EVAs at Hadley Apennine site, including the highest point reached on Hadley Delta Mountain. The location of the pocket in which the flag was carried can be seen in the photo above…This special United States flag has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” A small printed photo of Scott on the lunar surface is at the top of the letter identifying the pocket. In fine condition. This flag and its impeccable provenance remains one of the few Apollo mission-flown artifacts that were personally flight-certified by the astronaut who actually carried it on the surface of the moon! Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
