Unique lunar flown MacBean Clan tartan cloth carried to the moon aboard the Lunar Module Intrepid, 7.75 x 4.75, signed in black felt tip, “Alan Bean, Apollo 12.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in part: “I hereby certify that the accompanying…piece of MacBean tartan traveled to the moon with Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and me in our command module, ‘Yankee Clipper’ and then down to the Ocean of Storms with Pete and me in our lunar module, ‘Intrepid.’ The MacBean tartan remained in ‘Intrepid’ during our 33 hour stay on the lunar surface. The tartan has been in my personal collection since my return to Earth.” Charles Conrad and Alan Bean became the third and fourth human beings to set foot on the moon on November 19, 1969, less than three months after launch of Apollo 11. This unique flown piece of tartan symbolizes Bean’s Scottish pride—the surname Bean meaning ‘lively one’—as well as his most defining space achievement. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
