    Description

    Apollo 15 Lunar Module Flown Largest Size American Flag in Framed Display. An 11.75" x 7.75" cloth U.S. flag that flew to the surface of the moon aboard the Lunar Module Falcon with Mission Commander Dave Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Jim Irwin. The flag is beautifully matted to an overall 24" x 30" along with an embroidered mission insignia patch, a large color photo of Irwin on the moon with the Lunar Rover, and two notes. The first is signed to NBC news correspondent Jay Barbree: "Jay and Jo/ His Love from the Moon/ Jim Irwin/ Apollo 15/ [drawn moon]". The other is written to Irwin by Scott confirming that this is one of the lunar-landed flags: "Jim/ 8 Flags & 2 Patches-/ 1/3 of those that reached/ Hadley on I Aug 71/ Dave". Flags of this size that flew in the LM are quite rare and desirable. A display worthy of the finest collections. Excellent condition.

    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.
