    Description

    Rare larger-size U.S. flag flown to the moon on Apollo 16.

    Apollo 16 Flown American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. An 11.5" x 7.75" cloth U.S. flag that flew to the moon on the next-to-last Apollo mission with crewmembers Young, Mattingly, and Duke, April 16-27, 1972. Young has signed on the top two white stripes of the reverse: "Flown Apollo 16/ John W. Young" (visible from the front). Flown flags of this size are rarer than the 6" x 4" versions and eminently more displayable, making them very desirable to collectors. Excellent condition with storage folds.
