    Apollo 8 Flown Flag on Certificate Signed by Mission Lunar Module Pilot Bill Anders. This 5.875" x 4.125" cloth U.S. flag flew on the first-ever manned mission to the moon, December 21-27, 1968, with Frank Borman, James Lovell, and Bill Anders aboard. It is mounted onto a 10" x 12" cardstock certificate with the printed text, "This Flag was Carried Aboard the First Manned Lunar Orbit Spacecraft/ APOLLO 8/ December 21-27, 1968/ Borman - Lovell - Anders". There is a color launch photo mounted below. It is signed boldly at lower left: "To Bill/ Many Thanks/ Bill/ Anders". The Frank Borman and James Lovell signatures at lower right are autopens. The possibility exists to obtain their authentic signatures at shows or private signings. Excellent.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
