DescriptionApollo 14 Flown Texas State Flag Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 5.75" x 4.25" cloth state flag of Texas that was carried aboard Apollo 14 on its mission to the moon, January 31-February 9, 1971, with crewmembers Stuart Roosa, Alan Shepard, and Edgar Mitchell. Dr. Mitchell has certified this flag on the red stripe: "Flown to the moon on Apollo 14/ Edgar Mitchell ". Texas, of course, is the home of the Johnson Space Center, NASA's center for manned spaceflight activities. Excellent with just one tiny crease at upper right.
Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity from Mitchell on his personal letterhead. It reads, in full: "This letter is to certify that the accompanying 'State of Texas' Flag (4" x 6") was carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Kittyhawk on the Apollo 14 mission to the Fra Mauro Highlands January 31 to February 9, 1971. It was in lunar orbit for 67 hours. This flag has been in my personal collection of Apollo memorabilia since that time. Enjoy it in remembrance of that historic period."
