Description

    Rare larger-size flag, flown to the moon.

    Apollo 14 Flown Large American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed and Certified. A very desirable larger-size 11.25" x 8" silk U.S. flag that flew to the moon on Apollo 14 with crewmembers Shepard, Mitchell, and Roosa, remaining on the Command Module Kitty Hawk in lunar orbit. Dr. Mitchell has certified this flag on the lower two white stripes: "Flown to the moon aboard Apollo 14/ Edgar Mitchell". This size is very desirable due to increased rarity and superb display presence. Excellent condition with only one vertical fold at left side.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Edgar Mitchell" on his personal letterhead stating (in part): "This letter certifies that the accompanying 8" x 11" flag of The United States of America bearing the written inscription... was carried in my personal preference kit (PPK) on Apollo 14 from January 31, 1971 to February 9, 1971 during the Apollo 14 mission..."
