Flag Flown to the Moon - Signed by Astronaut Ed Mitchell
Apollo 14 Lunar Module Antares Flown
American Flag, Signed by Edgar Mitchell. The Apollo 14 Lunar
Module (LM) Antares was the third crewed vehicle to land on
the moon. It carried two astronauts, Commander Alan B. Shepard Jr.
and LM pilot Edgar D. Mitchell (Command Module pilot Stuart Roosa
stayed aboard the command module), and contained sample collection
apparatus and various scientific experiments to be deployed and
left on the lunar surface. Shepard and Mitchell were the fifth and
sixth men to walk on the lunar surface. Together they hold the
record for the longest ever moonwalk (9 hours and 17 minutes) and
traveled further on the moon's surface than anyone else.
While on the moon, Shepard and Mitchell deployed numerous scientific instruments, conducted experiments, and collected almost 100 pounds of samples for return to earth. During this time, astronaut Mitchell carried this American flag with him as he completed experiments and explored the lunar surface.
Offered here is a 6 x 4" cloth flag carried by LM Pilot Edgar Mitchell during the Apollo 14 mission. Inscribed and signed: "Flown to the Lunar surface aboard Antares - Feb. 5, 1971. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP." The flag is accompanied by two certificates of authenticity - one handwritten and one typed - by Ed Mitchell on his personal Apollo 14 letterhead. Both the flag and the certificates of authenticity are in very fine condition. From the personal collection of Dr. Edgar Mitchell.
