    Apollo 8 Flown American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot James Lovell, Certified and Signed. This 5.75" x 4.25" silk U.S. flag is lightly mounted to a 9.625" x 11.5" white mat board with the following text in a calligraphic hand: "This Flag was Carried Aboard the First/ Manned Lunar Orbit Spacecraft/ Apollo VIII/ December 21-27, 1968/ Lovell ~ Borman ~ Anders". Beneath are the bold authentic signatures of the crew: "James Lovell", "Frank Borman", and "Bill Anders". This flight captured the attention of the world as it circled the moon on Christmas Eve, broadcasting back a breathtaking view of Earth. An important addition to any space collection and great for display. Excellent condition.

    Lovell has certified this flag on a white stripe: "On board Apollo 8 spacecraft James Lovell".

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell stating: "[This item] was flown on the first journey to the moon on December 21, 1968 on board the Apollo 8 Spacecraft."
