Desirable flown American flag carried on the Apollo 16 mission, 5.75 x 4, affixed to a 14 x 11 presentation certificate, which has been signed in felt tip by the full crew, "John Young," "Ken Mattingly," and "Charlie Duke." An inscription to the left side reads: "To Tim Hait, Thanks for all the good poop on the rocks." Across the top is a printed caption: "This flag was carried to the moon by the crew of Apollo 16." The certificate also bears a printed lunar plaque, and an affixed circular Beta cloth mission patch. The flag is in fine condition; the mount shows scattered brown staining, none of which affects the flag. Apollo 16 served as an important geological lunar journey, and the astronauts collected a grand total of 731 individual rock and soil samples with a mass of 96 kilograms.
