CONRAD'S APOLLO 12 MISSION EMBLEM.
OVER 31 HOURS ON THE LUNAR SURFACE.
Flown Apollo 12 cloth emblem, 4 inches in diameter. Features a multi-sailed clipper ship above the lunar surface and four stars: three for the Apollo 12 crew and one for Astronaut Clifton Williams who would have been the flight's Lunar Module Pilot had he not died in a T-38 jet crash in 1967. The emblem is display above paragraphs on a Typed Letter Signed by CHARLES CONRAD.

CHARLES CONRAD'S signed provenance letter reads in part: "The above patch was from the first group ever made. It does not have the white outer border between the blue and gold threads. That was added to the additional production runs of the patch. Those runs had minor variations in thread shades, placement of the background stars, and the thickness of the dust trail behind the clipper ship above the moon ... The blue and gold colors are symbolic for my all Navy crew.
We were launched to the moon 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 and spent over 31 hours on the lunar surface. The Apollo XII mission lasted just over 10 days, ending with splashdown on November 24, 1969."
