    Description

    Apollo 15 Flown American Flag on Crew-Signed Mat, Directly from the Estate of NASA Legend Chris Kraft, with Certificate of Authenticity. A 20" x 16" mat bearing a 9.875" x 7.375" color photo of the Jim Irwin on the lunar surface, a 6" x 4" U.S. flag, a 4" embroidered mission insignia patch and a printed note: "This flag carried aboard Apollo 15 during the first extended scientific exploration of the moon, July 26-August 7, 1971." Handwritten below the photo by Al Worden is the following personal dedication: "To Chris Kraft with personal regards from the crew/ of Apollo 15 and many thanks for your leadership and guidance/ in the success of lunar exploration. Nov. 1, 1971." Beneath that are the crew signatures: "Dave Scott", "Al Worden", and "Jim Irwin". There is a bit of typical bleedthrough from the adhesive on the flag. Also some fading to the handwritten message and signatures, as well as the photo.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
