Description


Alan Bean’s flown sterling silver praying angel pendant carried to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Intrepid during the Apollo 12 mission, measuring approximately .75″ tall. In fine condition. Accompanied by a handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in full: “I hereby certify that the accompanying silver angel pendant traveled with me to the moon in our command module ‘Yankee Cliper’ and then down to the Ocean of Storms in our Lunar Module ‘Intrepid’…This angel pendant has been in my personal collection since my return to Earth.” A tender symbol of Bean’s reverence to science and religion, this small token of faith spent a remarkable 33 hours on the lunar surface.
