Offering my large Kansas Cosmosphere Liberty Bell 7 Large Artifact lucite. Includes original brown box and form letter from the museum. $1850USD

Measures 7 inches wide, 5 inches tall and 2 inches thick. Weighs approx 2lbs.

Free shipping to USA. Will ship worldwide if tracking offered to your country at cost of shipping (will likely be expensive). I will offer a $40 credit to overseas, which is equal to what free shipping to USA would cost me.

Please email me if you have any questions.

Just a quick note to thank those who contacted me on this lucite.

So my asking price is obviously too high for today's market and with little interest here I have decided to put it on eBay tomorrow Sunday March 4th.

It will be listed with no reserve with a $1 opening bid true auction and I will let the marketplace decide the value.

The Apollo 17 lucite looks a lot like the Cernan Corp Apollo 17 lucites.

Did Cernan Corp and the Cosmosphere have an agreement? The pieces in my Cernan Corp lucite look almost identical to the ones on this auction.

I have three different versions of this lucite: one with verbiage on the bottom referencing Ron Evans and the Kansas Cosmosphere, and two referencing the Cernan Corporation. The two referencing the Cernan Corporation have the same verbiage on the bottom but the mission logos are slightly different, with one of the logos having a 'patch-like' look.

Well, the marketplace final answer was 1,535$ so you were not too far with your initial estimation!

One sold several years back for $4400 at one of the space auctions. It was almost identical but certainly an anomaly price wise. Two others with the same artifact went in the past 3 years for $1800-$2200 at Heritage. It seems the market slowed on these recently. Impeccable provenance — was one of my best pieces.

My goal was $1500-$1800. All the offers I received with the Make Offer function on eBay were in the $500-$800 range when I initially listed it on eBay a couple weeks back.

Similar offers came from this posting on here. A couple people from here were pretty crafty in the way they got their message across to me I was out to lunch with my price. First email — lots of enthusiasm asking if they can buy it. Second email, sorry I misread your price, good luck selling that! That was cute. All us collectors want everything so cheap.

Anyways thanks to everyone here for the interest and to those who helped out with the bids on this and all the other lucites I sold.

I picked up one of these 1 of 50 large Liberty 7 Lucites with a valve embedded from the Cosmosphere at an estate sale a couple of years ago. There were also four vintage Apollo CM shaped resins with flown material embedded from Apollo 8, 11, 15 and 17 that I bought at the sale.

The LB7 piece is very well done and one of my favorites.

I have a bolt and it is still one of the best lucites I own. I think it's the best the Cosmosphere has ever produced (along with the film lucites).
