Alan Bean’s sterling silver praying angel charm flown to the lunar surface aboard the Apollo 12 LM Intrepid, measuring approximately .75″ tall. In fine condition. From the personal collection of Alan Bean. Accompanied by a lengthy handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in full: “I hereby certify that the accompanying silver angel charm traveled with me in our command module, ‘Yankee Clipper’ to the moon on the Apollo 12 mission. I transferred the angel to our lunar module ‘Intrepid’ for the descent to the Ocean of Storms. The little angel remained in the lunar module until Pete Conrad and I lifted off the moon some 33 hours later, rendezvoused with Dick Gordon orbiting above, and returned to planet Earth. The angel charm has been in my collection since that time.” Representing Bean’s deference to the fields of science and religion, this small token of faith spent a remarkable 33 hours on the lunar surface.
