Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity on Weitz's personal letterhead stating, in full: "To whom it may concern- I hereby certify that the 'P. WEITZ' name tag and the Beta cloth United States flag presented with this letter were originally on one of my tan inflight jackets that I word during the first Skylab mission, Skylab I, May 25- June 22, 1973. As our mission progressed, worn crew clothing was routinely disposed of after a prescribed period of use. Prior to disposal into the aft waste tank, I cut (obviously not carefully) these items from my jacket. On the reverse side, I have annotated and signed each item on the tan Durette material."
