The ribbon rack consists of five military ribbons, including: a Navy Distinguished Service ribbon, a Distinguished Flying Cross ribbon, and a National Defense Service ribbon, each with service star pin. Includes Conrad's pair of black formal dress trousers and an off-white open-back waistcoat with USN buttons. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches. A highly appealing selection of military attire personally-owned and -worn by history’s third man on the moon, with much attention sure to be focused on the presence of Conrad’s gold Naval Astronaut wings—although their flight status remains unconfirmed, research indicates that Conrad did include Astronaut Wings on his PPK inventory list for the Skylab 2 mission.
