Description

    Apollo 15 Flown National Flag of Japan Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. Offered here is a 6" x 4.125" cloth Japanese flag that was carried aboard Apollo 15 on its mission to the moon in 1971. Interestingly, this familiar "rising sun" design, though in use since 1870, was not adopted nationally in Japan until 1999. Worden has signed on the bottom edge: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP". Excellent condition with a bit of insignificant soiling at the right side.

    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 Japan included with this letter and marked with my signature and flight number went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'ENDEAVOUR'..."
