    Description

    Apollo 16 Flown Large-Size American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. An 11.5" x 7.75" cloth U.S. flag that flew aboard the Apollo 16 Command Module Casper to the moon, April 16-27, 1972, with crewmembers Young, Mattingly, and Duke. Young has signed on the lowest white stripe: "Flown Apollo 16 John W. Young". Flown flags of this size are rarer than the 6" x 4" versions and eminently more displayable, making them very desirable to collectors. Excellent condition with storage folds.
