    An amazing offering of twenty-five Apollo 17 patches flown to the moon, as originally packaged for the mission.

    Apollo 17 Flown Still-Sealed Package of Twenty-five Beta Cloth Mission Insignia Patches Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Ron Evans. Still enclosed in two heavy plastic bags, one approximately 12" x 10" inside another of approximately 14" x 12", are twenty-five color Apollo 17 mission insignia printed on Beta cloth swatches of approximately 9" x 9". The inside bag has a red and white 2.375" x 1.5" NASA-MSC "Cleaned for Service" sticker with the handwritten Specif. "MSCM5322", Level "Code 1", and Date "11-17-72" along with an inspector's stamp. The white 2.5" x 1.75" sticker on the outside bag has the handwritten Part Number "X4065", Serial Number "N/A", and Date "11/17/72" along with an inspector stamp. The bags have never been opened since their sealing thirty-seven years ago, just weeks before the mission. The mission insignia for this flight was designed by preeminent space artist Robert T. McCall. A rare opportunity. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Jan Evans (Mrs. Ron Evans) stating: "I certify that the original sealed package of Apollo 17 Beta Cloth mission patches, further identified by part number x 4065 was flown to the moon aboard Apollo 17, December 1972. It is among the few items my husband Ron Evans, Apollo 17 CMP, retained from the flight. It has been with our family since that time."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
