    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Michigan State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed, with Signed LOA. This 6" x 4" Michigan flag flew to the moon aboard Apollo 14, January 31-February 9, 1971, with crewmembers Alan Shepard, Stuart Roosa, and Ed Mitchell. The flag design consists of the state's coat of arms on a blue field with three Latin phrases: "E Pluribus Unum" (Out of many, one); "Tuebor" (I will defend); and "Si Quæris Peninsulam Amœnam Circumspice" (If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you). Dr. Mitchell has signed this flag in the lower right corner: "Edgar Mitchell/ Apollo 14/ LMP". This is the only the second flown Michigan flag Heritage has offered. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity on his personal letterhead, stating (in part): "This document certifies that the accompanying miniature (4 x 6 inches) Michigan Flag signed 'Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot' was carried in my personal preference kit (PPK) during the Apollo 14 mission aboard Kittyhawk."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
