Lot Details
CREW PATCH—CARRIED TO THE LUNAR SURFACE.
Flown Apollo 15 emblem, cloth, 4 inches in diameter. Featuring the Apollo 15 crew insignia designed by Emilio Pucci, and with silver thread on craters to the right forming the Roman numerals "XV."

Flown in the Apollo 15 Lunar Module Falcon, down onto the surface of the moon. With DAVE SCOTT'S SIGNED provenance note, reading in part: "I carried the Apollo 15 emblem accompanying this letter to the Hadley Apennine region of the moon. I was Commander of the mission, and Jim Irwin and I landed the Lunar Module Falcon on the moon on July 30, 1971. Within the center of the patch, our landing site is reproduced, and embroidered on top in silver thread is the Roman numeral 'XV.' Only a very limited number of these special patches were produced. We returned to Earth in the Command Module Endeavour. This emblem has been in my personal collection since then."
