American flag flown aboard the Apollo 7 mission, 6 x 4, flight certified below in black ballpoint by former NASA technician Walt Salyer, “Flown on Apollo 7 for me by Walt Cunningham.” The flag is double-matted and framed with an embroidered Apollo VII patch, both of which are affixed to the reverse of a photographic reproduction entitled “Task Activities on Lunar Surface,” with the lower border of mat signed in black felt tip, “Walt Cunningham, Apollo 7” and “Wally Schirra, Apollo 7, Cdr.” The presentation measures to an overall size of 16.5 x 14, and features a window on the backing to view the reverse. In fine condition. Originates from the personal collection of Salyer, a friend of Cunningham’s from their days in the Navy. He became one of five space suit technicians at NASA who maintained crew equipment through all of the space programs—from Mercury through Apollo. Accompanied by two color photos of Schirra and Cunningham posing with the item at the time of signing.
