Description


Alan Bean’s flown gold cross pendant carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Yankee Clipper during the Apollo 12 mission, measuring approximately .25 x .5. In fine condition. Accompanied by a handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in part: “I hereby certify that the accompanying gold cross pendant…traveled to the moon in our command module, ‘Yankee Clipper’ along with Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon, and me on our Apollo 12 mission in November of 1969…This beautiful gold cross has been in my personal collection since that time.” Representing Bean’s deference to the fields of science and religion, this small token of faith orbited the moon a remarkable 45 times.
