    Apollo 12 Flown American Flag on Crew-Signed Certificate with NASA Photo Showing Its Presentation. A 6" x 4" cloth U.S. flag mounted to a 14" x 11" mat along with a 6.75" square color photo of the LM "Intrepid at Ocean of Storms". Beneath the flag is a label that reads: "This flag was flown to the moon aboard Apollo 12 14-24 November 1969". On a label at the bottom is the text: "Presented to Pat Patnesky with sincere thanks and appreciation for outstanding support provided to members of the Astronaut Corps." The mat is signed at the lower right by the entire Apollo 12 crew: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan Bean". Included is a 10" x 8" official NASA B&W glossy photo of Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean presenting Patnesky with this very flag. First one of this type we have handled. Light waviness to the mat, which would be mitigated by framing, otherwise excellent. From the personal collection of longtime NASA photojournalist Andrew "Pat" Patnesky.
