The extensive notations and stamps on the accompanying Spacecraft Parts Tag indicate that the flag kit was stored in LM6, being the Lunar Module Intrepid of Apollo 12. A notation in red pen to the first page of the Spacecraft parts tag indicates that the flag was "Downgraded to Cl. III", i.e. not flown. The accompanying Geological hammer head was likely also a back-up item. The two were presented as a retirement gift from NASA to a longtime employee who worked in their machine shop, as a thank you for his decades of service.
