Description


Flown silver Snoopy pin carried to the lunar surface on Apollo 15 from the collection of Commander Dave Scott, affixed to a large 13.5 x 17 mount along with a 4″ diameter Apollo 15 mission patch (with "XV" embroidered in silver thread) and a color glossy 10 x 8 photo of Jim Irwin saluting the American flag on the lunar surface. Affixed below the pin is a caption, "This Snoopy pin was carried on the lunar surface throughout the geological exploration of the Hadley-Apennine, Apollo 15, July 26-August 7, 1971," which is signed below in black felt tip by Dave Scott. In fine condition, with some toning to the mount around the pin area. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott, in part: "I hereby certify that the Silver Snoopy Pin included with this letter, was carried in the pocket of my A7L-B spacesuit during Apollo 15, the first extended scientific exploration of the Moon, July 26-August 7, 1971...This Snoopy Pin was carried during each of our three EVAs at the Hadley Apennine site, including the highest point reached on Hadley Delta Mountain...During Apollo 15, only 6 Snoopy pins were carried to the surface of the Moon. Subsequent to Apollo, and during the Shuttle program, NASA flew many Snoopy pins, after which often the crews themselves awarded the pins to NASA and contractor personnel...This silver Snoopy Pin has been in my personal collection since returning to the Earth from the Moon." An iconic surface-flown piece from the commander's personal collection.
