Description


Flown American flag, 5.5 x 4, flown to the lunar surface during the Apollo 15 mission, flown on board Apollo 9, and carried to the South Pole in 1970. Scott has identified the flag as such by writing the following symbols on the reverse lower right corner, “9,” [Apollo 9] “15?,” [Apollo 15, Delta] and “SP” [South Pole]. Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Dave Scott stating, in part, “I hereby certify that the United States flag included with this letter…is from my personal collection and was flown aboard Apollo 9…then carried to the South Pole, Antarctica…and then flown to the lunar surface during Apollo 15…This specific flag is identified by the following handwritten symbols on the reverse lower right corner of the flag beneath the star field: ‘9’ ‘15?’ ‘SP.’ The symbol ‘9’ means that the flag was carried on Apollo 9...it was then carried to the South Pole...’SP’ during which I was a member of a NASA management team observing the manner in which science is conducted in a hostile environment...and on Apollo 15...I carried this flag in the pocket of my spacesuit during all EVA excursions including climbing Hadley Delta Mountain to the highest point we reached on the Moon, thus the symbol ‘15?.’” In fine condition. An incredibly well-traveled flag, with the distinction of having accompanied Commander Scott during all Apollo 15 EVA excursions, including the climbing of Hadley Delta Mountain. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
