Description

    Apollo 15 Flown New York State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. Offered here is a 6" x 4" cloth New York flag that was carried aboard Apollo 15 on its mission to the moon in 1971. The New York state flag pictures two sailing ships in its coat of arms as well as the Latin word "Excelsior" which can be translated (appropriately) "higher" or "ever upward." Worden has signed inside the riband: "Apollo 15/ Al Worden CMP" and at the lower edge: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP" (low contrast). A small paper tag reading "New York" is lightly stitched at the left edge; it could easily be removed. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity on his letterhead, stating (in part): "I hereby certify that the New York State flag included with this letter and marked with my signature and flight number went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'ENDEAVOUR'. It remained in the command module during the lunar orbit phase of the flight. It has been in my personal possession since then"
