Description


Rare and exceptionally desirable flown American flag carried on board Apollo 14, 6 x 4, signed and flight-certified in blue ballpoint by Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, in full: "Flown to the Lunar Surface aboard Antares—Feb. 5, 1971. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP." In fine condition, with some wrinkles to corners. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Edgar Mitchell, in part: "This is to certify that the accompanying Apollo 14 Lunar Surface American Flag was proudly carried by me aboard our Lunar Module 'Antares' to the Moon's surface. On February 5, 1971, Alan Shepard and I landed our Lunar Module 'Antares' on the Moon at Fra Mauro…To commemorate this milestone, I personally carried the accompanying 4 x 6 inch American Flag with me in my Lunar Module 'Personal Preference Kit' bag. This flag then remained stowed in within the 'Antares'…as Alan Shepard and I completed our exploration of the Moon's surface…This Lunar Surface Flag has been a valued part of my personal space collection since 1971." American flags are among the most coveted flown relics from the Apollo missions, particularly those which reached the lunar surface rather than remaining in orbit. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
