Alan Bean’s flown American flag carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Yankee Clipper during the Apollo 12 mission, 11 x 7.5, signed and flight-certified in the lower right corner in black ink, “Flown to the moon in the CM, Apollo XII, Nov ‘69, Alan L. Bean.” In fine condition, with some creasing from storage. Accompanied by a handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in part: “I hereby certify that the accompanying…American flag signed by me…traveled with Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and me to the moon in our command module, ‘Yankee Clipper’ during our Apollo 12 mission in November 1969. Seeing this flag brings back memories of a great American exploration and adventure. This flag has been in my personal collection since my return to Earth.” Flown aboard the Yankee Clipper CSM over the course of a ten-day period, including a mesmerizing 45 lunar orbits, this American flag, signed and certified by history’s fourth moonwalker, is made all the more desirable by its unusually large size. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
