    Flag of the "Lone Star State"

    Apollo 16 Flown Texas State Flag Directly from the John W. Young Collection, with Letter of Certification. A 6" x 4.25" cloth flag of the Lone Star State that flew to the moon on the next-to-last Apollo mission with crewmembers John Young, Ken Mattingly, and Charlie Duke, April 16-27, 1972. Not common. NASA's Johnson Space Center, located in the Houston area, is where Captain Young worked until his retirement on December 31, 2004, after six space flights and forty-two years of distinguished service. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Young's widow, Susy Young. It reads, in full: "I hereby certify that the flag of the STATE of TEXAS that accompanies this letter was flown to the Moon aboard the Apollo 16 mission April 16-27, 1972. It has been a part of John W. Young's personal collection since returning from the mission. The flag has a holographic tamper-proof label, #1733181, to ensure authenticity, that will display a residual honeycomb design without number if removed."

    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.
