    Al Worden Signed Flown Apollo XV Lunar Map. Apollo XV lunar map, 11" x 7.75" trimmed, signed "Flown to the Moon Al Worden Apollo 15 CMP".

Accompanied by a certificate of provenance signed by Worden attesting to the historic importance of the Apollo XV mission. Certificate reads in part: "Apollo 15 was the first mission to explore the mountains and rilles of the Moon. Commander Dave Scott and Luna Module Pilot James Irwin completed three moonwalks for a combined duration of 18 hours and 33 minutes on the lunar surface. They explored the Hadley/Appenine Mountains over a longer period, at greater distances, and with more instruments for the collection of scientific data than any previous mission. Our mission included the introduction of a Lunar Roving Vehicle to traverse the Moon's surface and a scientific instrument bay in the Service Module to study the Moon from above... During the return trip to Earth, nearly 200,000 miles away from home, I performed a 38 minute spacewalk to recover film that had been exposed during flight. This was mankind's first ever deep space EVA..." Map is unevenly trimmed, with a single vertical crease down middle, light surface wrinkling throughout commensurate with use on a mission.
