DescriptionApollo 12 Flown Large-Size Texas Flag on Crew-Signed Mat, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA on Photo. A 11.25" x 7.75" Texas "Lone Star" state flag mounted to a matboard along with an unflown Apollo 12 embroidered mission insignia patch. Attractively matted and framed to an overall 25" x 21". Bean has signed the flag on the lower right corner: "Flown to the moon/ Aboard Apollo 12 Nov 69/ Alan L Bean". The entire crew has signed on the mat beneath: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean". Dramatically more displayable than the 6" x 4" flags normally seen. A tiny bit of adhesive bleedthrough on the flag, otherwise excellent.
Included with this lot is a unique handwritten and signed "letter of authenticity" from Bean on an 8.5" x 11" color photo of the earth as seen from the moon. It reads, in full: "On November 19, 1969 Pete Conrad and I landed on the moon, in the Ocean of Storms, near a group of craters we called Snowman. This Flag was flown to the moon in Yankee Clipper by our Apollo 12 crew and returned to earth November 24, 1969. Alan Bean/ Lunar Module Pilot/ Apollo 12/ November 19, 1999". Note that the date is the thirtieth anniversary of his lunar landing.
