    Apollo 17 Flown American Flag and Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch in Framed Display, Directly from the Estate of NASA Legend Chris Kraft, with Certificate of Authenticity. A 5.5" x 4.25" cloth U.S. flag and a 4" diameter patch mounted to a 13.5" x 10.5" (sight size) matboard with three color photos from the mission. A caption framed underneath the flag and patch reads: "This Flag and Patch were carried to the Moon aboard the spaceship America Apollo XVII December 6-19, 1972". Flown patches from this mission are exceedingly rare, and this is the first Apollo 17 flown patch and flag presentation Heritage has ever offered. Relics such as this are not common in the collecting community. Which would suggest that it would require someone with some serious prestige to be gifted such a unique memento. This was located on the east wall of the upstairs den in the Kraft home. Framed to an overall 15.25" x 12.5". Some typical glue bleed through on the flag. Very fine.
