    Ex. James Lovell

    Apollo 13 Flown Beta Cloth Mission Insignia Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed and Certified. This dramatic and colorful mission insignia depicts three horses flying across space with the Latin slogan "Ex Luna, Scientia" (from the moon, knowledge). It has been professionally double-matted to 9" x 9". Lovell has signed on the cloth above the insignia: "On board Apollo 13 on flight around the Moon" (a bit light) and below: "James Lovell". On the verso is attached a printed statement from Lovell, in part: "I hereby certify that this Apollo 13 insignia was flown on board the Apollo 13 Command Module, Odyssey during it's perilous flight around the moon April 11-17, 1970. It was one of 450 patches listed in the Commander's Personal Preference Kit and located in pouch part number SEB32100025-301, serial number 1016..." This is the first of these matted examples Heritage has offered since 2014. Very fine. From the collection of Lee Nunn.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
