    Description

    Apollo 8 Flown U.S. Flag with Crew Patch. Carried along on the Apollo program's first manned mission around the moon, was this U.S. flag and crew patch. The flag, 6" x 4" in size, is affixed to a certificate presented to Jerry Carr, a member of the astronaut corps and the support team of the Apollo 8. Under the flag is the printed inscription "To Jerry Carr, Thanks for your help." and the autographs of Borman, Lovell, and Anders. These were the first men to see the far side of the moon. Also attached to the certificate is the colorful crew patch with the number eight incorporated in the design. The certificate states "Carried on Board Apollo 8, First Lunar Flight, 21 - 27 December, 1968". The brown parchment paper is wrinkled but appears natural to the way it was made. Measuring 19" x 15" as framed and matted. This item is from the Carr collection and is accompanied by a handwritten letter of authenticity by JoAnn Carr.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
