Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,027.38 (includes buyer's premium)


Flown pendant depicting Jesus wearing a crown of thorns, measuring 1″ in diameter, carried into space aboard the Apollo 9 mission. In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from McDivitt, in full: “I certify that this Jesus in a crown of thorns pendant was flown aboard Apollo 9 on her flight in March, 1969. It is from my personal collection.” Intended to cause Jesus pain and to mock his holy claim, the woven crown of thorns has become symbolic of not only Christ’s passion and suffering, but also that of his fulfilled prophecy, reminding the world entire of his enduring love for humanity. As McDivitt was the first Roman Catholic to fly in space, this is an especially remarkable flown token of faith.
