Description

    Apollo 8 Flown Wisconsin State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot James Lovell. This 6" x 4" flag with the state motto "Forward" (very appropriate) was aboard Apollo 8 on its journey to the moon. It is mounted onto a 9.875" x 11.875" board with the printed text, "This Flag was Carried Aboard the First Manned Lunar Orbit Spacecraft/ APOLLO 8/ December 21-27, 1968/ Borman - Lovell - Anders". The bold authentic signatures of the crew, "James Lovell", "Frank Borman", and "Bill Anders" are found at the bottom. James Lovell grew up in Wisconsin, graduating from high school in Milwaukee and attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Note: the current Wisconsin flag now contains the terms "Wisconsin" and "1848", a modification made in 1981. Excellent condition with some show-through at corners of flag from mounting.
