    Description

    Apollo 7 Flown State Flag of New Jersey Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Wally Schirra, Signed and Certified, with Signed Letter of Authenticity. A 6" x 4" cloth flag of Schirra's home state that flew on the first Apollo mission. The design of the New Jersey flag depicts the emblem from the state's Great Seal against a buff-colored field. Signed at lower edge: "Flown on Apollo 7 Wally Schirra". This is the first state flag Heritage has offered from the Apollo 7 mission. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed presentation LOA on his personal letterhead reading, in full: "This New Jersey state flag was flown on Apollo 7 during October 11 to 22, 1968. Apollo 7 was the first manned flight of the command and service modules. The flight was 101 percent successful! I was born and attended school in New Jersey. I felt it was appropriate to carry the flag of my home state on my final space flight. Walter Cunningham, Donn Eisele, and I carried a very small group of flags during our mission. I have written that it was flown on Apollo 7 and signed this flag on lower bottom."
