EXTRA LARGE UNITED STATES FLAG CARRIED ON APOLLO 10.
US flag, silk, 11 by 18 inches. Inscribed towards the lower edge "Flown to the Moon on Apollo X, Tom Stafford." Together with a Typed Letter Signed by Thomas P. Stafford.
Stafford's letter reads in part: "This United States flag was carried to the moon on the Apollo X mission. It was one of the very few extra large flags taken on our mission ... Our flight lasted from May 18 to 26, 1969. Apollo X successfully tested techniques needed to accomplish the first lunar landing mission of July 1969. The flag has been in my private collection since 1969."
