Description


Truly remarkable flown microfilm prayer covenant, 2 x 2.5, carried to the lunar surface in Charlie Duke’s Personal Preference Kit, presented on an 8.5 x 11 informational sheet housed in a presentation folder, signed at the bottom in blue felt tip, “Charlie M. Duke, Jr.” Includes a signed letter of provenance from Duke, in part: “This prayer covenant was presented to me by my fellow Astronaut, Jim Irwin…at his suggestion, the church entered into a prayer covenant where they promised to pray for our safety…This covenant is, to the best of my knowledge, a one of a kind treasure here on Earth of the religious artifacts carried to the surface of the Moon.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a blown up image of the covenant. This is a stunning piece because it is actually the only one in existence—something that even the extremely desirable microfilm Bibles flown to the moon on Apollo 14 cannot claim, as there were 300 of them. Its association between two moonwalkers makes it even more special. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
