Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Large-Size American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell, Certified and Signed. This 17.75" x 11" silk American flag flew with crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell on board what was, up to that point, the longest manned spaceflight (thirteen days, eighteen hours), a record that stood for five years. The astronauts joked to Mission Control upon return about getting married after having spent so much time together in space. Lovell has certified and signed on one of the flag's white stripes: "This American Flag Was Flown Aboard Gemini 7 Dec 1965. James Lovell". The large size of this flag would make it a dramatic space flown display item. Excellent condition with storage folds.

    This lot includes a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell stating: "[This item] was flown on board Gemini 7 spacecraft. Gemini 7 launched in December of 1965 was the fourth earth-orbiting spacecraft of the Gemini series."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
