Ex. John Young
Apollo 16 Lunar Module Flown American Flag from the John W.
Young Collection, with Letter of Certification. A 5.875" x 4"
cloth U.S. flag that flew to the surface of the moon in the LM
Orion, along with Young and Charlie Duke, spending
seventy-one hours there. Flown Apollo 16 flags, especially those
flown to the surface, are rare. 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 small size American flag accompanying this letter was flown to the Moon and to the lunar surface aboard the Apollo 16 Lunar Module Orion April 16-27, 1972. It has been a part of the John W. Young collection since returning from the mission. The flag has a holographic tamper-proof label attached, #1745132, to ensure authenticity, that will display a residual honeycomb design without number if removed."
