Catalogue Note

With THOMAS P. STAFFORD'S signed provenance letter which reads: “This cloth crew emblem was carried to the Moon on the flight of Apollo X beginning May 18, 1969. Upon return to the Earth on May 26, this emblem became one of the fastest flown artifacts from space travel, reaching some 24,791 nautical miles per hour prior to re-entry into our planet’s atmosphere.

This emblem flew to within 50,000 feet of the lunar surface in our Lunar Module named Snoopy. Over one billion viewers on earth watched the first color television from space and lunar orbit during the flight. The emblem has been in my private collection since 1969.”
