    Description

    Apollo 17 Flown Flag on Presentation Certificate. A 5.75" x 4" cloth U.S. flag that flew with Cernan, Evans, and Schmitt on the last manned lunar landing. It is mounted to a slightly-trimmed 13" x 10" illustrated certificate reading: "In recognition of your outstanding contribution to the manned space flight programs. Presented to Thomas D. Carpini", dated "January 16, 1981". Beneath the flag is printed: "This flag was carried to the Moon aboard the spaceship America/ Apollo XVII December 7-19, 1972". Carpini joined NACA during World War II and served thirty-seven years as an engineering technician; this was likely presented upon his retirement from NASA. General toning, light soiling, and minor glue bleedthrough on flag. Matted to an overall 14" x 11", ready for framing. Very good.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
