FLOWN Apollo 15 Flag & Patch Presentation to McDivitt Signed by Scott, Worden & Irwin (Framed)
FLOWN ABOARD APOLLO 15, AND SIGNED BY THE CREW TO JIM MCDIVITT!
From astronaut Jim McDivitt’s personal collection.
Vintage presentation of flown American flag and embroidered Apollo 15 crew patch (with silver “XV” and black “E” hallmarks, specially produced for the crew), inscribed “To Jim McDivitt with all the best from the crew of ’15’ and sincere appreciation for putting all of this together and making sure it worked – it made our job easy! Nov. 1, 1971”, signed by Dave Scott, Al Worden, and Jim Irwin, and given by the crew to McDivitt, who was Apollo 15 Program Manager.
The original tag below the flag reads “This flag was carried aboard Apollo 15 during the first extended scientific exploration of the Moon, July 26-August 7, 1971”. McDivitt has personally confirmed that both the flag and the patch were flown.
The patch is identified as being specially produced for the crew by the silver-thread “XV” hallmark to the right of center, and the black, highly-stylized “E” hallmark located above the “WO” in Worden’s name, as reference to Chris Spain on Eugene Dorr’s webpage, genedorr.com/patches/Apollo/Ap15.html.
COA signed by McDivitt included.
Framed with photo of Irwin saluting American flag near LM and rover, set in a blue suede matte.
Framed size 24.25″x18.25″
