    Apollo 12 Flown American Flag on Crew-Signed Mat Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Signed and Certified, with Signed COA, in Framed Display with Bean-Signed Print. A 5.75" x 4" cloth U.S. flag signed at the lower right corner: "Flown to the moon/ Apollo XII Nov 69/ Alan Bean" mounted to a mat signed in black ink: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean".

This flag made 45 orbits of the moon in our Command Module 'Yankee Clipper' before returning to planet Earth with us."
