    Ex. Richard Gordon

    Apollo 12 Lunar Module Flown Largest- Size American Flag Signed and Certified on Flag on a Presentation Mat Signed by and Directly from the Family Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon, with Signed Certificate of Authenticity. A 17.5" x 11.5" cloth U.S. flag mounted on a 20" x 16" mat with the pencil signature below: "Richard Gordon". Gordon has written on the flag in black ink the following: "This American Flag Flew on Apollo XII aboard Yankee Clipper and Intrepid, making the final/ descent to the lunar surface at the Ocean of Storms on November 14-24, 1969/ Richard Gordon Apollo XII CMP". An outstanding item with great provenance. Perfect for display due to the larger size. Not common. Light soiling and bumps to the edge of the mat, minor glue bleedthrough on the edges of the flag. Very fine.
