The first space-flown Soviet flag we've ever offered.Apollo 15 Flown Flag of the Soviet Union Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 6" x 4.375" cloth "red banner" flag of the U.S.S.R. that flew to the moon aboard Apollo 15 along with astronauts Dave Scott, Al Worden, and Jim Irwin. For much of the 1960s decade, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. competed head-to-head to be the first to land a man on the moon. The United States won that "contest" and would land a total of six manned spacecraft there between 1969 and 1972. Later, in 1975, the two countries co-operated in a mission to put an end to this "space race," the Apollo- Soyuz Test Project. Worden has signed along the lower edge: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP". Moon-flown Soviet flags are extremely, rare so don't miss out on this opportunity. 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 USSR included with this letter and marked with my signature and flight number went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'ENDEAVOUR'..."
