Lot 447: Flown American flag, 6 x 4, signed on the white stripes in black ink, "Flown on Gemini IV, Jim McDivitt." In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from McDivitt, in part: "I certify that this item is from my personal collection, from my years as a NASA astronaut. It has flown in space." Stemming from the very Gemini mission that enabled the US to soar past the Soviet Union's early lead in the Space Race, this is an ideal and attractive example of a flown American flag.
