Description


Remarkable flown American flag carried to Earth’s south pole in 1970 and to the lunar surface on Apollo 15 in 1971, 5.5 x 4, signed in blue ballpoint with the locations and his first initial, “SP Hadley d, D.” In fine condition. 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 carried to the South Pole, Antarctica, January 9-15, 1970, and then carried across the lunar surface for three days during Apollo 15, July 26-August 7, 1971…This flag is identified by the following handwritten symbols on the reverse lower right corner of the flag beneath the star field: ‘SP’ ‘Hadley d’ and ‘D.’ The symbol ‘SP’ means that the flag was carried to the South Pole in January 1970; and ‘Hadley d’ means that during Apollo 15 I carried this flag in the pocket of my spacesuit…during all three EVA excursions including climbing Hadley Delta Mountain to the highest point we reached on the Moon. The ‘D.’ represents my initials.” Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
