    APOLLO 16

    Apollo 16 Flown American Flag on Crew-Signed Presentation Certificate. A 6" x 4" cloth U.S. flag that flew aboard Apollo 16 to the moon, April 16-27, 1972, with crewmembers John Young, Ken Mattingly, and Charlie Duke. It has been mounted to a 14" x 11" parchment-type certificate with the printed header: "This Flag Was Carried To The Moon By The Crew Of Apollo 16". It is signed: "Jack Byer-/ Thanks for helping/ to make this possible", "John Young", "Ken Mattingly", and "Charlie Duke". Beneath is a Beta flight insignia attached and a printed image of the Orion Lunar Plaque. The writing has faded as usually seen but the flag is bright with barely visible glue bleedthrough only in the corners. Two flaws at the right edge would mat out. Very fine overall.
