Lot Details
APOLLO 12 CREW EMBLEM–CARRIED TO THE LUNAR SURFACE.
Flown Apollo 12 emblem, cloth, 4 inches in diameter. Features a Clipper ship above the moon. Mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Charles Conrad on his personal stationery.

A crew "patch" taken to the lunar surface by Apollo 12 Commander Charles Conrad.
He explains: "This Apollo XII cloth patch is from my personal collection. Our Apollo XII emblem had several variations made in patch form. Those variations consisted of different colors and shades of thread, the placement of the background stars, and thickness of the dust trail behind the clipper ship above the Moon. One production run even had a hidden number “12” in the dust trail. The blue and gold colors are symbolic of my all-Navy crew. Our mission to the Moon began on November 14, 1969. Alan Bean and I made the second lunar landing of the Apollo program on November 19. This patch was carried in the Lunar Module Intrepid and spent over 31 hours on the lunar surface. The flight lasted just over 10 days, returning to Earth on November 24, 1969."
