    U.S. Flag Carried to the Moon on Apollo 14! A 6" x 3.75" U.S. flag, a letter, and the Apollo 14 patch have been affixed to a 10.5" x 13.5" mat, framed to 12" x 15". The Typed Letter Signed "Edgar D. Mitchell," is on undated NASA stationery and is addressed to Joe Garino. Signed as Captain, USN, LM Pilot, Apollo XIV, Mitchell writes, in full, "Dear Joe: The enclosed American flag was carried to the moon on the Apollo XIV mission with Alan Shepard, Stu Roosa and myself. Please accept it as a token of our thanks for the support you provided in making Apollo XIV a success." The letter is soiled and the left half is dampstained, affecting Mitchell's signature. The flag and patch, however, are in apparently excellent condition. Apollo 14 was the third successful manned lunar landing with Mitchell and Shepard walking on the moon. Accompanied by a one page, 8" x 10.5", Typed Letter Signed "Mitch" by Ed Mitchell to Joe Garino, in part "the flag and patch are my pleasure..." From the collection of renowned former physical trainer of the astronauts Joe Garino. This lot is accompanied by a signed certificate of authentication from Garino verifying its provenance.
