    Rare and perfect for display

    Apollo 12 Flown Largest-Size American Flag in a Framed Display, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Signed and Certified. This 16.5" x 11.25" U.S. flag accompanied Conrad, Gordon, and Bean as they made their journey to the moon on NASA's second manned landing. Almost aborted when the Saturn rocket was hit by lightning, one of Apollo 12's main missions was to retrieve data from the Surveyor 3 already on the moon. The flag is signed in the lower right corner by Alan Bean: "Flown to the Moon/ Apollo XII, Nov. 1969/ Alan L Bean". This size flag is much rarer than the more-often seen 6" x 4" versions, beautifully presented and very well-suited for display. Mounted above an embroidered "Yankee Clipper" mission insignia patch and an engraved plate. As framed, 20.5" square. A couple of minor dings in the frame, excellent overall.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
