#438 - Apollo 16 Signed Flown Flag Estimate: $3,000+

Very desirable flown American flag, 5.75 x 4.25, and embroidered mission patch, 4.25″ in diameter, carried to the moon aboard the Lunar Module Orion during the historic Apollo 16 mission. Both are mounted with two captions and a color photo of John Young during a lunar EVA, with the lower left of the mount signed in black felt tip by Young, Charlie Duke, and Ken Mattingly, who adds the inscription: “To Stretch, With many thanks for your support of the Apollo 16 Postflight appearances to 33 to 36 places in 18 to 20 states and D.C. Warmest personal regards from the crew of Apollo 16.” Framed to an overall size of 21.5 x 17.5. In fine condition.

Originates from the personal collection of longtime NASA employee Robert B. 'Stretch' Flanagan, a Senior Security Specialist who accompanied the Apollo astronauts on their post-flight goodwill world tours. He was nicknamed ‘Stretch’ on account of his 6´6″ height.
