    Rare, Large U.S. Flag Flown to the Moon

    Apollo 12 Flown U.S. Flag with Crew Patch. Nicely displayed and framed, this flag accompanied Conrad, Gordon, and Bean as they made their journey to the moon on our second manned visit. Almost aborted when the Saturn rocket was hit by lightning, Apollo 12's mission was to retrieve data with the Surveyor 3. Signed and inscribed in the lower right corner by Alan Bean, reading "Flown to the Moon Apollo XII, Nov. 1969, Alan Bean" . The silk flag is in excellent condition. Picturing the Yankee Clipper landing on the month plaque below the patch gives the name of the flight as well as the date. This large 16" x 11" flag is much rarer than the more-often seen 6" x 4" version. As framed, 20.5" square. From the collection of Sue Bean-Gilliam.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
