    Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Patch with Letter of Authenticity Signed by Walter Cunningham. Original Apollo 12 patch depicting the Yankee Clipper orbiting the Moon, inscribed and signed on verso by Apollo 7 lunar module pilot Walter Cunningham. Written in heavy black Sharpie, the patch reads: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 12, from my personal collection. Walt Cunningham Apollo 7." Accompanied by a typed letter of certification, on Walter Cunningham's Apollo 7 letterhead, which reads in full: "In December 1969, Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and Alan Bean left the planet Earth on Apollo 12 to land on the Moon for the second time in history. On their return, this Apollo 12 patch was given to me by my good friend, Alan Bean. It is a prized artifact of the 'golden age of manned spaceflight,' when man first left our home planet to land on another body in the universe, the most memorable accomplishment of the twentieth century. The patch has been continuously in my possession since that time. Walt Cunningham, Apollo VII." Both the patch and the LOA are in very fine condition - perfect for framing and prominent display! From the collection of Walter Cunningham, who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
