I received my invoice via the web, wired the funds and received the lots on Thursday via my FedEx account.

It was a good auction with a lot of web traffic.

I even made a trade while I was down there that completed the flown patches of Skylab series.

    Very, very nice, Larry! Did the astros mention why they cut the patches off rather than saving the entire garment?

    Who mentioned panic? It was a reasonable question, n'est-ce pas?
    I have mine, thank you very much.

    John,

    I don't know why they cut them from the garment, but I can ask.

    No big deal, I'm just curious. My guess would be that they didn't want to keep the garment, but they wanted the patches -- and patches store easier!

    Regardless, that's a pretty nice ... and likely unique ... collection you have there.

    Cheers!

    Larry--If I am not mistaken, much of the crew garments, clothing, and even personal equipment were stored away aboard the OWS when Skylab was launched and not aboard the CMs. When I got some of Conrad's suit items (i.e. U.S. flag, Beta NASA meatball with Velcro backing, name tag, etc.) they, too, had been cut-away from their full garments. I do remember something from Conrad about this, however, I can't confirm it until I talk with another Skylab astro that I will do so soon. Another reason, which may seem quite logical, would be space and weight constraints in bringing back so many full garments.

    Received my items and they all were very well packaged and came in a timely manner. Good job!

    Ken,

    You are correct. The number of Durette IVA garments differed depending on the length of time of the crew's stay on board.

    Paul Weitz and Jack Lousma told me that they disposed of the used garments, but cut the patches off as souvenirs from the flight.

    How have things been down in Merritt Island?

    I am satisfied with lot 357 comprising 7 signed X-15 launch covers for flights exceeding 50 miles. Unfortunately I missed lot 358 which would complete this collection.
