Lot 9234: Spectacular flown American flag carried into lunar orbit on board Apollo 8, 6 x 4, affixed to a 9.5 x 11.5 presentation sheet with an affixed photo of the launch, signed in black felt tip, "James Lovell," "Frank Borman," and "Bill Anders," and inscribed by Anders at a later date, "To Hal Collins, Many thanks for all your help!" Framed to an overall size of 11.75 x 13.75. In fine condition, with the Borman and Anders signatures a shade or two light. Flown Apollo 8 flags remain particularly elusive, with this being an even more desirable example given the flag's pristine condition and the overall clear presentation. Provenance: Harold Collins Collection.
