    Description

    Apollo 13 Flown National Flag of Canada from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell. This 6" x 4" space flown cloth Canadian "Maple Leaf" (l'Unifolié in French) flag has been lightly mounted to a heavy 10" x 12" certificate that states, "This flag was on board Apollo XIII during its flight and emergency return to Earth/ APOLLO XIII/ April 11-17, 1970/ Lowell - Swigert - Haise". It bears the authentic signatures of two crewmembers- "James Lovell" and "Jack Swigert" (1931-1982), and an autopen signature of "Fred W. Haise", all just above the mission insignia. This flag design only replaced the Union Jack as the national flag in 1965. Excellent condition with just some minor crinkling in the margins.

    This lot includes a signed Letter of Authenticity from Lovell on his letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that this National Flag of Canada was on board the Apollo 13 spacecraft. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. The flag was from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission.

    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.
