(Lot 419) The prototype United States Lunar Flag, identical to that left on the lunar surface by the Apollo 11 crew, was the first prototype of the U.S. flag developed by Johnson Spaceflight Center Technical Services for Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to plant on the lunar surface. It consists of a gold-anodized, two-part pole (96") with a fold out nylon flag mearsuring 59"x35". A fold-out gold-anodized horizontal bar across the top of the flag holds the unfurled flag when opened. As far as we know, this is one of only two examples of NASA lunar flags on earth.
(Lot 747) A complete set of flown NASA Shuttle silverware used by astronaut Jean-Loup Chretien. It is a place setting of four pieces including knife, soup, teaspoon, and fork. Each piece is engraved 'SHUTTLE' on the handle and has an orange dot on the end. Included is the original baggie that contained this silverware, marked with a NASA label that reads 'UTILITY KIT ASSY / P/N SED48100152-305'. Pristine condition, and almost never available.
(Lot 915) A flown Russian spacesuit used by cosmonaut Vinogradov to and from his flight to MIR. This full pressure suit is complete with gloves (each marked with cosmonauts initials, VPV), as well as the internal pressure lining, hoses, etc., plus a felt cover for the helmet. There is a Russian Federation flag patch on the shoulder, and a 'PK' (Russian Cosmonauts) patch — the Russian equivalent of NASA on the chest.
