Lot 9328: Flown American flag carried to the moon on the Apollo 12 mission, 6 x 4, signed in black ballpoint by the three crew members, "Alan Bean, Apollo XII," "Richard Gordon, Apollo XII," and "Charles Conrad, Jr., Apollo XII." Some show-through from toned adhesive to reverse from previous mounting, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by photos of all three taken at the time of signing. Provenance: Superior Auction, June 1994. American flags are among the most sought-after flown formats, not often found fully signed by the crew with mission designations and with such solid photographic signing evidence.
