    Description

    Apollo 9 Flown American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, Signed and Certified. A 5.625" x 4" cloth U.S. flag that was carried aboard the third manned Apollo mission, March 3-13, 1969, with crewmembers Jim McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart. Apollo 9 was the first flight of the Command/Service Module with the Lunar Module. The testing accomplished during its ten days in low earth orbit proved the LM worthy of manned spaceflight. Schweickart has signed in the lower left on the bottom two white stripes: "Flown on Apollo 9/ Rusty Schweickart". Flown flags from Apollo 9 are quite uncommon; Heritage has offered only one previous to this auction. Excellent condition.
