I have a certificate with an authentic swatch of fabric from the Wright Brothers Flyer attached. The certificate measures 8 1/2 x 11". The fabric measures about 1 1/2 x 1 1/2".

You can see a scan of the piece here.

This piece of fabric came from Orville Wright's estate. The certificate is signed by Harold Miller who was the co-executor of Wright's will.

The certificate is made out to Carlos G. Liggett. He has initialed the piece in the lower right corner.

I'm looking for autographs, flown items, contractor samples, etc. from Mercury, Gemini and Apollo.
