Apollo 17 flag flown to the Moon could bring $5,000 in US sale

One small click of your mouse could be a giant leap for the value of your collection at auctioneer Ira & Larry Goldberg's upcoming Stamp, Space and Manuscript Auction.

Among the sale's highlights are memorabilia items from various Moon missions, including this Apollo 17 space flown flag. It is mounted on a 16 x 13 inches blue and white NASA presentation certificate.

The certificate reads: "This flag was carried to the Taurus-Littrow Valley of the Moon - December 1972."


Flown to the Moon and back... The Apollo 17 flag

The certificate bears the printed signature of Christopher C. Kraft, Jr, Director of the Johnson Space Center. It's "attractive and seldom available in this format," read the lot notes.

How much for a flag that's been to the Moon? Well, Ira & Larry Goldberg have estimated it at $3,500-5,000, but it could sell for significantly more.

The auction will be held in Beverly Hills, on November 6.
