I have just added some exceptional items from the Schirra Family Collection, the Cunningham Collection as well as a number of other general items as well. Some of the highlights include:
  1. Wally Schirra's Omega Speedmaster Professional presented to him in 1969 by Omega. This 18K gold watch is Number 8. The most desirable of all Astronaut owned non flown watches.

  2. The Sigma 7 Mercury Atlas Blockhouse Launch Arming Key presented to Wally Schirra following his mission.

  3. A garment bag issued by NASA to Walt Cunningham and used while flying his T-38.

  4. Apollo 9 Crew Signed Litho priced to sell in pristine condition.

  5. Elliott See non inscribed signed photo

  6. Gene Kranz beautifully inscribed but not personalized covers
Coming tomorrow and Wednesday, a Sigma 7 and Gemini 6 flown artifact from the personal collection of Wally Schirra. Please check back and take a look at these and other items being added every day or two as we enter the holiday period.

These can be viewed by visiting www.farthestreaches.com and clicking on the Breaking News navigation button. Happy Thanksgiving to all...

I have just added an amazing Sigma 7 flown Mercury artifact from the Schirra Family Collection. This is exceedingly special item and rather than describe it here, encourage you to take a look by visiting my my website for details and photos.
