Three flown-to-the-moon relics including a large-size U.S. flagApollo 10 Crew-Signed Presentation with Flown Large American Flag, Flown Maryland State Flag, and Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch, Presented to and Originally from the Personal Collection of Vice President Spiro Agnew. A 16" x 20" matboard with three flown-to-the-moon items mounted: at top is a large size 11.5" x 8" silk U.S. flag; below left is a 6.25" x 3.75" silk flag of the state of Maryland; below right is a 4" embroidered mission patch. Beneath is written: "To Vice President Spiro T. Agnew/ Carried to the Moon on Apollo X" followed by the crew's signatures: "Thomas P. Stafford", "John Young", and "Gene Cernan". Apollo 10 was the important dress rehearsal flight for Apollo 11, the first moon landing. It's rare to see three flown items in one presentation; only a limited number of the larger flags were flown. Some fading to the inscription and signatures, otherwise fine.
The Flag of the State of Maryland consists of the heraldic banner of George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore. It is the only state flag in the United States to be based on British heraldry and was officially adopted by Maryland in 1904. Spiro Agnew was governor of Maryland when he became vice president, the highest-ranking political office ever reached by a Marylander.
