Moon & Apollo 15 Flown Flag

The Apollo 15 mission of 1971 was the fourth mission to land on the moon and the first to use the Lunar Roving Vehicle. The main goals of the flight were to explore the Hadley-Apennine region, observe and study the components of the lunar surface, run experiments during lunar orbiting and assess the engineering of the latest Apollo equipment.

We have sold many moon flown Apollo 15 flags and other Apollo 15 memorabilia items at auction. One unique item was a hand controller which sold for $72,556:

The Apollo 15 Hand Controller From Al Worden

As Al Worden, the Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot, puts it in the signed COA included with this hand controller, which is mounted on wood: “…this control stick cover, NASA serial number MSC 991-0001.12, was the hand controller I used during the flight of Apollo 15. The function of the hand controller was to adjust the attitude of the spacecraft during flight. For instance it was critical to the maneuver designed to withdraw the Lunar Module from the S-IVB stage of the launch vehicle once leaving earth orbit. This maneuver involved 180 degree rotation of the Command and Service Module to align with the Lunar Module in storage. It was also essential for the alignment of the spacecraft in the proper direction for any thrusting maneuver. This controller was essential to the success of Apollo 15 and has been in my possession since the flight.” In near fine condition. Sold for $72,556.
