(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,748.90 (includes buyer's premium)


Flown embroidered American flag patch carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Yankee Clipper during the Apollo 12 mission, measuring 3.5 x 2.25, signed and flight-certified on the reverse in black felt tip, “Flown to the moon, 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…embroidered American flag, signed by me on the back, traveled to the moon with Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and me in our command module, ‘Yankee Clipper’ during our Apollo 12 mission in November 1969. See this flag brings back vivid memories of a great American exploration and adventure. This patch has been in my personal collection since our return to planet Earth.” Less than three months after the historic Apollo 11 mission, the crew of Apollo 12 launched on November 14, 1969, and enjoyed a 10-day trip to and around the moon. This pristine embroidered flag remained aboard the Yankee Clipper with Richard Gordon, successfully orbiting the moon an amazing 45 times while Bean and Charles Conrad explored the Ocean of Storms. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
