Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Large Texas Flag with Crew-Signed Beta Cloth Insignia in Framed Display, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Signed and Certified, with Signed COA. An 11" x 7.75" cloth flag of the Lone Star state signed in the lower right corner: "Flown to the Moon/ Apollo XII Nov 69/ Alan Bean". It is matted and framed to an overall 20" x 27" with an engraved plate and a Beta cloth mission insignia patch signed by all three: "Charles Conrad", "Richard Gordon", and "Alan Bean". The size of this flag makes it particularly attractive for display by some proud current or former (or wannabe) Texan. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from Novaspace signed by Bean stating, in full: "This Texas flag was flown to the moon on Apollo XII, the second lunar mission in November, 1969. Apollo XII landed in the Ocean of Storms, and the crew consisted of mission commander Charles "Pete" Conrad, Command Module pilot Richard Gordon, and myself as Lunar Module Pilot. This flag was among those few flown by me in my pilot preference kit aboard the command module Yankee Clipper. I inscribed the flag in the lower right "Flown to the moon Apollo XII Nov. '69 Alan Bean."
