Description

    Apollo 15 Flown Flag of Spain Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 5.75" x 4" cloth Spanish flag that was carried aboard Apollo 15 on its mission to the moon, July 26-August 7, 1971. This flag stayed in the orbiting Command Module Endeavour with Al Worden while Dave Scott and Jim Irwin took the Lunar Module Falcon to the lunar surface along with the Apollo program's first lunar rover. Note that the current flag of Spain does not feature the eagle and shield; this flown flag is of the design used during the period 1945-1977. Worden has signed on the lower portion of the yellow stripe: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP". Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Al Worden" on his letterhead, stating (in part): "I hereby certify that this flag from Spain (1945-1977) included with this letter went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'ENDEAVOUR'. It remained in the command module during the lunar orbit phase of the flight."

    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.
