    Ex. Alan Bean

    Apollo 12 Flown Largest-Size American Flag on a Crew-Signed Presentation Mat in a Framed Display, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Signed and Certified. This 16.5" x 11.5" cloth 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". The flag is mounted on an 18" x 14" (sight size) mat nicely signed at the bottom in black ink: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Dick Gordon", and "Alan L Bean". Elegantly matted and framed with an engraved plaque to an overall 22.5" x 18.5". Excellent.

    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.
