LIMIT BIDDERS

INTERNET BIDDING

If you are unable to attend the auction in person, and wish to place bids, you may give Ira & Larry Goldberg’s bid department instructions to bid on your behalf. Our representatives will try to purchase the lot for the lowest price possible, and will not purchase the lot for more than you indicate. This service is free and confidential. Note: Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles offers this service as a convenience to clients who are unable to attend the sale in person, and although we will make every effort, we will not be responsible for error or failure to execute bids.

If you have a “limit” that you must stay within you must clearly notate this limit on your bid sheet. We will buy your lots as inexpensively as possible but will not exceed your “limit”.

Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles has available internet bidding for those wishing to conduct live bidding over the world wide web. Please visit www.goldbergcoins.com for instructions and information regarding our new Live Bidding Software. For bidders that want to place Absentee Bids through email or over the internet, click the “how to bid” button, then click the online fill in form. You must be registered with our firm to be able to participate in the internet bidding process. This service is free and confidential. Note: Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles offers this service as a convenience to clients who are unable to attend the sale in person, and will not be responsible for error or failure to receive bids due to network or internet down time. iCollector.com bidding requires a 20% premium and additional Terms and Conditions. Weapons lots and certain other items may not be included on iCollector.com

PLACING ABSENTEE BIDS To place bids, please use the Absentee Bidder Form provided in this catalog. Be sure to accurately put the lot number and the maximum price you are willing to pay on each lot. Always indicate a top limit or the amount which you would bid if you were attending the auction in person. This amount should not include the buyers commission noted in chapter 16 of the “Terms and Conditions of sale”.

MAIL BIDS When bidding by mail, you frequently purchase lots for less than your maximum bid. On the floor of the auction, bidding will open at 5-10% above the second highest mail bid: We act on your behalf as the highest mail bidder. If the auctioneer recognizes no other bids from the floor, you will be awarded the lot at the opening bid. If bidding proceeds from the floor, the company, acting as your agent, bids in increments over the previous bid. This process is continued until you are awarded the lot or you are outbid by the floor.

“OR BIDS” Alternative bids should be indicated by using the word “OR” between the lot numbers. Then if your bid on an early lot is successful, we will not continue to bid on any other lots for you. Or, if your early bids are unsuccessful, we will continue to execute bids for alternative lots until a bid is successful. Bids must always be placed in the same order as the lot numbers appear in the catalog.

TELEPHONE BIDS Bids may be placed by telephone, but are accepted only at Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles discretion and at the risk of the telephone bidder. We will not be responsible for error or failure to notify the customer in a timely manner during the auction. The telephone bidder must notify the company prior to auction all lots the bidder is interested in bidding on. The telephone bidder should have a preconceived idea of the top limit that he/ she would like to bid prior to auction. In some instances the representative of the company will request this information at the time of auction. This information assists us in the bidding process by giving us a range to stay active in the bidding. We will not notify the auctioneer of your limit and will buy your lot at the lowest price possible.

BUYER’S PREMIUM The “top limit” you indicate on your bid form is for the hammer price only. Please keep in mind that a buyer’s premium will be added to the successful bid price of each lot you buy and is payable by you, together with the applicable sales tax and shipping charges which is applied to the total cost of your purchase (the total cost includes the buyer’s premium). The buyer’s premium of 15% will be added to each lot as stated in “Terms and Conditions”.

SUCCESSFUL BIDS Successful bidders will be notified and invoiced within a few days of the sale. All bidders may view prices realized on our website, www.goldbergcoins.com, after the sale.


TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE These Terms and Conditions of Sale set forth the terms of a public auction sale conducted in Beverly Hills, California by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc., a Nevada corporation, California Auction Bond No. 3S95453300 (hereinafter, the “Auctioneer” or “Goldberg”). The Terms and Conditions of sale, the glossary, if any, and all other contents of this catalog are subject to amendment by us by the posting of notices or by oral announcements made during the sale. By participating in any sale, you acknowledge that you are bound by these terms and conditions. 1 This catalog contains the description of property of multiple consignors (the “Consignors”), and may include consignments from Goldberg, its principals, and affiliated or related companies and their employees, officers, or principals. All persons seeking to bid, whether in person, through an agent or employee, or by telephone, facsimile or mail, must have a catalogue and register to bid at the auction, either by completing a registration card or by completing the bid sheet incorporated into the catalogue. The Purchaser acknowledges that an invoice describing a lot by number incorporates the catalogue by reference. 2. By submitting a bid, whether in person, by mail, by phone, by facsimile or through an employee or agent, the Bidder acknowledges (i) receipt of the catalogue, (ii) that the Bidder has read the Terms and Conditions of Sale and the descriptions for the lots on which they have bid, and (iii) that they agree to adhere to these Terms and Conditions of Sale. Acceptance of Bids: Anyone wishing to place bids on lots who will not be attending the live auction must submit their bid(s) at least six (6) business hours prior to the auction session. Bidder is responsible for verifying Goldberg received said bids . 3. Each Bidder’s determination of its bid should be based upon its own examination of the item(s), rather than the grade represented in this Catalogue or elsewhere. In any purchase or sale, the value of the item(s) is determined by the price. THE PURCHASER HEREBY ASSUMES ALL RISKS OF VALUATION CONCERNING ANY AND ALL PURCHASES. All Floor Bidders acknowledge that the Auctioneer can decline to accept bids from a Floor Bidder who is known to have not, in fact, examined the lot prior to the sale. 4.

All material shall be sold in

separate lots to the highest Bidder as determined by Auctioneer. If any dispute arises during or immediately after the sale of a lot, Auctioneer shall have the right to rescind the lot offered and put the lot up for sale again. In all cases, Auctioneer’s decision shall be final. For the protection of any Mail Bidder, no “unlimited” or “buy” bids will be accepted. Goldberg shall have the right in its sole and absolute discretion to reject any such bid received. When identical bids are received for a lot, preference is given to the first bid received as determined by the Auctioneer. A mail bid will take precedence over an identical floor bid; a Floor Bidder must bid higher than the highest mail bid to be awarded any lot. 5. Bids must be placed for an entire lot and each lot constitutes a separate sale. No lot will be broken up unless the Auctioneer determines otherwise. Lots will be sold in their numbered sequence unless Auctioneer directs otherwise. 6. Due to the fungibility of the items sold, all lots may carry a reserve. For purposes of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, a reserve means a confidential price below which the Auctioneer will not sell an item or will re-purchase on behalf of the Consignor or for the account of Goldberg.

(iii) to reduce any mail bid received, (iv) to open the bidding of a lot at any level deemed appropriate by the Auctioneer, and (v) to determine the prevailing bid. Bids will not be accepted from persons under eighteen (18) years of age without a parent’s written consent containing an acknowledgment that the Terms and Conditions of Sale herein and indicating their agreement to be bound thereby on behalf of the Bidder. 9. It is unlawful and illegal for Bidders to collude, pool, or agree with another bidder to pay less than the fair value for a lot. Bidders in the sale acknowledge that the law provides for substantial penalties in the form of treble damages and attorneys’ fees and costs for those who violate these provisions. 10. Goldberg reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time, even after the hammer has fallen, until the Purchaser has taken physical possession of the lot. No Consignor who has registered to bid at the sale (or at any other time unless otherwise provided in the consignment agreement), or any Purchaser or prospective Bidder shall have a right to claim any consequential damages if a lot is withdrawn, even after the sale.

7. The Auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the seller; a Bidder by mail, telephone or facsimile; or any other participant in the sale. The Auctioneer may also bid on behalf of the Consignor up to the amount of the reserve, by (i) accepting bids from floor agents on behalf of the Consignor, or any affiliated or related company of the Auctioneer or the Consignor; (ii) by placing successive or consecutive bids for any lot; or (iii) by placing bids in response to other Bidders.

11. GOLDBERG IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ERRORS IN BIDDING. A Bidder should make certain to bid on the correct lot and that the bid is the maximum (plus the fifteen percent (15%) Buyer’s Commission) that he or she is willing and able to pay. Since other Bidders (by mail, facsimile and in person) will be present, and since a reoffering could damage the momentum of the sale, once the hammer has fallen and the Auctioneer has announced the winning Bidder, such Bidder is unconditionally bound to pay for the lot, even if the Bidder has made a mistake.

8. Auctioneer reserves the right, at his sole discretion, (i) to accept or decline any bid, (ii) to accept or decline any challenge to any bid or bidding increment,

12. THIS IS NOT AN APPROVAL SALE. All lots sold to the highest Bidder as determined by Auctioneer are final. Floor Bidders are encouraged to care-


fully examine all lots which they are interested in purchasing because all sales of items viewed by Purchasers in advance of a sale, even if the sale is by mail, telephone or facsimile, and all lots bid upon by the Floor Bidders, together with all those presenting Goldberg with a resale certificate, out of state resale certificate, or similar evidence that they are acting as a dealer ARE FINAL AND SUCH ITEMS MAY NOT BE RETURNED. If the description of any lot in the catalogue is incorrect, the lot is returnable if returned within five (5) calendar days of receipt, and received by Goldberg no later than twenty-one (21) calendar days after the sale date. No return or refund of any auction lot will be considered except by reason of lack of authenticity, unless otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All lots are sold under the condition that any claims challenging authenticity must be made in writing by the original purchaser. All disputed lots must be returned intact as received in its original container. 13. All prospective Bidders who are allowed the opportunity to examine lots prior to the sale shall personally assume all responsibility for any damage they cause in so doing. Goldberg shall have sole discretion in determining the value of the damage caused, which shall be promptly paid by the prospective Bidder. 14. Title to any lot remains with Consignor, any secured party of the Consignor, or assignee of Consignor, as the case may be, until Purchaser pays for the lot in full. Goldberg reserves the right to require payment in full before delivering any lot to the successful Purchaser. 15. It is the Purchaser’s responsibility and obligation to have the lots fully insured while in his or her possession. Purchaser assumes any and all RISK OF LOSS once the lot(s) is in Purchaser’s possession. 16. A BUYER’S COMMISSION OF FIFTEEN PERCENT (15%) on each individual lot will be added to all purchases made by all Purchasers, except Consignors, regardless of Purchaser’s affiliation with any group or organization, and will be based upon the total amount of the final bid. iCollector.com adds 20% buyer’s commission. Additional terms and conditions apply. 17. Pursuant to a separate agreement with Auctioneer, Consignors or their

agents may be permitted to bid on their own lots in the sale and may receive a rebate commission in whole or in part if successful. Under some circumstances, Goldberg may agree with a Consignor (i) not to require the Consignor to pay for all or part of any items bid upon or repurchased by the Consignor; (ii) when or where an advance has been made, to have the Consignor pay an agreed upon difference to Goldberg; or (iii) to allow an offset against other transactions with Consignor. Where the Consignor has re-purchased a lot and the lot is either returned to the Consignor or otherwise dealt with or disposed of in accordance with the Consignor’s direction, or pursuant to contractual agreement, Goldberg reserves the right to so note in the prices realized or to omit a price from the price realized. Every Consignor who registers to bid in the sale, whether to “protect” a lot, or for any other purpose, agrees to all other Terms and Conditions of Sale per this agreement. 18. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, auction sales are strictly cash in U.S. Funds payable through a bank in the United States. Contact Goldberg for wiring instructions before sending a wire. Goldberg reserves the right to decline to release lots for which funds have not yet cleared. No credit card purchases will be accepted. On any cash transaction or series of transaction exceeding $10,000, Treasury Form 8300 will be filed. Lots must be paid for on the earlier of receipt of invoice or delivery. 19. Purchaser agrees to promptly pay, on demand, any sales tax, or any other tax, if required by law to be collected, postage, handling, and insurance plus the fifteen percent (15%) Buyer’s Commission, and any other taxes required by law to be charged or collected, together with any interest or penalty that may be assessed. 20. Purchaser grants to Goldberg or its assigns the right to offset any sums due, or found to be due Purchaser by Goldberg, and to make such offset from any past, subsequent or future consignment, or items acquired by Purchaser in possession or control of Goldberg or from any sums due to Purchaser by Goldberg. Purchaser further grants Goldberg a purchase money security interest in such sums or items to the extent applicable, and agrees to execute such documents as may be reasonably necessary to grant Goldberg such security interest. Purchaser agrees that Goldberg and its

assigns shall be a secured party with respect to items bought by Purchaser and in the possession of Goldberg, to the extent of the maximum indebtedness, plus all accrued expenses, until the indebtedness is paid. 21. By bidding in this sale, Purchaser personally and unconditionally guarantees payment. If the Purchaser is a corporation, the officers, directors, and principals of the corporation hereby agree to personally and unconditionally guarantee payment as part of the corporation’s agreement to bid. The authorized representative of any corporate Purchaser who is present at the sale shall provide Goldberg or its agent, prior to the commencement of the bidding (or at the time of registration), with a statement signed by each principal, director and officer that they each personally and unconditionally guarantee any payment due Goldberg. 22. No bids will be accepted from Floor Bidders and Mail Bidders who have not previously established credit with Goldberg unless they first (i) furnish satisfactory credit references or (ii) deposit at least twenty-five percent (25%) of their total bids for that session(s), or such other amounts as Goldberg may require, in its sole and absolute discretion. Any deposits made pursuant to this paragraph will be applied to such Bidders purchases. Any unused portion of such deposit will be promptly refunded upon clearance of the funds. 23. On any accounts past due, Goldberg reserves the right to extend credit and impose periodic charges, pursuant to these Terms and Conditions of Sale or as set forth in the Purchaser’s invoice. If the auction invoice is not paid in full when due, the unpaid balance will earn interest at the rate of one-andone-half percent (1½%) per month until paid. In the event this interest rate exceeds the interest permitted by law, the same shall be adjusted to the maximum rate permitted by law. Goldberg further reserves the right to resell the merchandise, or to have an affiliated or related company do so. Purchaser agrees to pay all reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and other collection costs incurred by Goldberg or any affiliated or related company to collect past due invoices, including reasonable costs of any resale of the merchandise. Purchaser also agrees to pay the difference between the resale price and any previous disbursements. Any excess money realized from the re-


sale shall first be applied to pay Goldberg its standard fees and commissions for a sale and the remainder, if any, will be paid to the Purchaser. Goldberg reserves the right to assign its interest to any third party. 24. Goldberg may, at its sole and absolute discretion, make loans or advances to Consignors and/or prospective Purchasers. 25. The Auctioneer may bid for his or its own account at any auction (even though it may not be required to pay a Buyer’s Commission, or other charges that other Purchasers may be required to pay) and may have access to information concerning the lots and items contained therein that is not otherwise available to the public. Any conflict of interest or claim of competitive advantage resulting there from is expressly waived by all participants in the sale. 26. If a dispute arises concerning ownership of a lot that has been bid upon, Goldberg reserves the right to commence a statutory interpleader proceeding at the expense of the Consignor and successful Purchaser and any other applicable party, and in such event shall be entitled to its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. 27. In the event of a successful challenge to the title to any goods purchased, Goldberg agrees to reimburse any Purchaser in an amount equal to the successful bid price actually paid by Purchaser at auction plus any Buyer’s Commission actually paid, in full and complete satisfaction of all claims, which once tendered by Goldberg, relieves and releases Goldberg from any responsibility whatsoever to the Purchaser, even if the instrument is not cashed or is returned. 28. Goldberg reserves the right to postpone the auction sale or any session thereof for a reasonable period of time for any reason whatsoever, and no Bidder or prospective Bidder shall have any claim as a result thereof, including consequential damages.

DISCLAIMERS AND WARRANTIES ALL ITEMS OFFERED IN THIS CATALOGUE ARE UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEED TO BE GENUINE (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED). WITHOUT TIME LIMIT TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER.

29. All oral and written statements made by Goldberg and its employees (including affiliated and related companies) are statements of opinion only, and are not warranties or representations of any kind, unless stated as a specific written warranty, and no employee or agent of Goldberg has authority to vary or alter these Terms and Conditions of Sale. Any alteration shall be effective only if in writing and signed by an officer of Goldberg authorized to do so. b. Bidders shall have no recourse against the Consignor for any reason whatsoever. 30. By bidding in the sale, (whether in person, by mail, telephone or facsimile, or through an agent), Bidder expressly consents to the following Waiver and Releases: Purchaser, for himself, his heirs, agents, successors and assigns, generally and specifically waives and releases, and forever discharges Goldberg, and its respective affiliates, parents, shareholders, agents, subsidiaries, employees, members of their respective boards of directors, and each of them, and their respective successors and assigns from any and all claims, rights, demands and causes of action and suites, of whatever kind or nature, whether in law or equity, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, which Purchaser may claim to have with respect to and/or arising out of, or in connection with any challenge to the title to any good purchased, the sale itself and/or the auction, except for reimbursement in the amount equal to any bid actually paid by Purchaser, plus any Buyer’s Commission actually paid by Purchaser where such reimbursement is authorized in these Terms and Conditions of Sale. It is the intention of Purchaser that this waiver and release shall be effective as a bar to each and every claim, demand, cause of action and suit that may arise hereunder, and Purchaser hereby knowingly and voluntarily waives any and all rights and benefits otherwise conferred upon him by the provisions of the California Civil Code, which reads in full as follows: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” 31. Neither Goldberg nor any affiliated or related company shall be respon-

sible for incidental or consequential damages arising out of any failure of the Terms and Conditions of Sale of the auction or the conduct thereof and in no event shall liability for any such failure exceed the purchase price paid. 32. The sole remedy that any Purchaser in the auction shall have, whether such Purchase is bidding in person, by mail, by facsimile, by telephone, or through an employee or agent, for any claim or controversy arising out of the auction shall be a refund of the original purchase price and premium paid, if any. 33. Upon payment of any disputed sum, which in no event shall be greater than the original purchase price actually paid by Purchaser plus any commission or premium actually paid by Purchaser to Goldberg, Auctioneer and its employees shall be deemed released from any and all claims of the Bidder arising out of or in connection with the sale of such property. Purchaser agrees to execute prior to delivery of any refund, any documents reasonably requested to effect the intent of this paragraph. Should the Purchaser decline to do so, Purchaser hereby grants to Goldberg a limited power of attorney to unconditionally effect such release. 34. Rights granted to Bidders and Purchasers under these Terms and Conditions of Sale are personal and may not be assigned or transferred to any other person or entity, whether by operation of law or otherwise. Any attempt to assign or transfer any such rights shall be absolutely void and unenforceable. No third party may rely on any benefit or right conferred on any Bidder or Purchaser by these Terms and Conditions of Sale and terms of warranty. “Purchaser” shall mean the original Purchaser of the property from Goldberg and not any subsequent owner or other person who may acquire or have acquired an interest therein. If Purchaser is an agent, the agency must be disclosed in writing to Goldberg prior to the time of sale, otherwise the benefits of the warranty shall be limited to the agent and not transferable to the undisclosed principal. 35. If the Purchaser fails to comply with one or more of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, then in addition to all other remedies which it may have at law or in equity, Goldberg may at its sole option, either (a) cancel the sale, retaining all payments made by Purchaser as liquidated damages, it being recognized that actual damages may be speculative or difficult to compute, or (b) sell some or all of


the property and (some or all other property of the Purchaser held by Goldberg, if Goldberg deems necessary), in a quantity sufficient in the opinion of Goldberg to satisfy the indebtedness, plus all accrued charges. More than one such sale may take place at the option of Goldberg. Such sale may take place without notice to Purchaser. If Goldberg gives notice, it shall be by U.S.P.S. Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested to the address utilized on the Bid Sheet, Auction Consignment and Security Agreement or other address known to Goldberg. Such sale will be at Goldberg standard commission rates at public or private sale, within California, or at another location outside of California to be determined by Goldberg. At the time of sale the defaulting party shall not bid nor be permitted to bid. The proceeds shall be applied first to the satisfaction of any damages occasioned by Purchaser’s breach, and then to the payment of any other indebtedness owing to Goldberg, including without limitation, commissions, handling charges, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, collection agency fees and costs and any other costs or expenses incurred thereunder. If a lot or item is not paid for, and is sold by Goldberg for Purchaser’s account, in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code, Goldberg shall not be required to account to the Purchaser for any excess proceeds. Purchaser shall remain liable to Goldberg if the proceeds of such sale or sales is insufficient to cover the indebtedness. If other property of Purchaser is also sold, any excess of proceeds will be remitted to the Purchaser after first deducting the expenses set forth above. If Purchaser fails to remit sums due to Goldberg, Purchaser grants to Goldberg a lien with respect to such sum, with interest to accrue thereon at the legal rate, until actually paid, which lien shall apply against any property of Purchaser, including any future goods of Purchaser coming into possession of Goldberg. To the extent permitted by law, Purchaser hereby waives all the requirements of notice, advertisement and disposition of proceeds required by law. 36. These Terms and Conditions of Sale and the auction shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and governed by, the laws of the State of California, whether or not the auction is and these Terms and Conditions of Sale are fully performed in California. 37. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the competent courts of the State of California shall have exclusive

jurisdiction over any dispute(s) arising hereunder, and Purchaser hereby agrees that any dispute arising hereunder shall be litigated exclusively in the courts of the State of California, and not elsewhere, regardless of any party’s current or future residence or domicile. Purchaser further agrees that venue shall be in the Superior Court of Los Angeles, in the State of California. 38. ATTORNEY FEES AND COSTS. The Bidder/Purchaser shall pay to Goldberg all costs and expenses of collection of amounts due herein, or to otherwise enforce any or all provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions of Sale, or any other agreement entered into with Goldberg, including but not limited to, reasonable attorney fees and costs incurred before legal action, if any, is commenced. The Bidder/Purchaser further agrees that in any litigation or other proceeding based upon, arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Bidder/Purchaser shall pay to Goldberg its attorney fees and other expenses and costs incurred in connection with the litigation or other proceeding if Goldberg is the prevailing party. 39.

BALLOONS MONTGOLFIER - THE FATHER OF FLIGHT AND INVENTOR OF THE BALLOON

550

Montgolfier, Joseph-Michel (1740-1810) French inventor who, with his brother Jacques-Etienne, built the first practical balloon, an important step in the development of aeronautics. The first balloon was inflated with heated air, which made an ascent of ten minutes at Annonay on June 5, 1783. They also built a balloon which carried a sheep, a rooster, and a duck to 1,000 feet over Versailles on November 21, 1783 while Louis XVI watched. To test whether balloons could carry passengers, Joseph made a 130-foot-diameter balloon ("Le Flesselle"), and on January 19, 1784, at Lyons, on the second attempt, Joseph and two other passengers (one of them being Claude Gabriel Fontaine) made a 15-minute flight. Autograph letter signed "J Montgolfier" 2 pages, in French, 9Âź x 7 1/8 in (237 x 188 mm), Paris, "le 14 brumaire an 11" (November 6, 1802). An affectionate letter written to Claude Gabriel Fontaine, who is in New York, regarding problems with Fontaine's son and various financial affairs and urging him to return soon to France. Integral address leaf with seal tear; some minor soiling. Fontaine was a close friend of Montgolfier, as well as being an aeronaut on that first manned flight. Estimated Value ................................................................................................................................................................................................... $4,500 - 5,500 Ex personal papers of Claude Gabriel Fontaine.

MERCURY PROGRAM

551

Mercury Program, 1961, USN Mk IV, Mod 2, Type 1 Full Pressure Suit, Survival Vest and Helmet. This green USN Mk IV high altitude, full pressure suit was made by B. F. Goodrich. It includes the full neck ring, cables, hoses, detachable gloves and a pressure guage on the thigh, in addition to a gold USN patch on the chest and right shoulder. The integrated cloth shoes are included, but the separate boots are omitted. Some zipper and rubber faults as would be expected, but the suit is in overall excellent condition. ALSO included is a separate "Mk IV Vest-Type Life Preserver Full Pressure Suit" with Specification No. MIL-L-22208A (WEP) / Serial No. 9184 / Date Mfg July 1965 / Bureau of Naval Weapons". The vest looks to be in new condition and includes all webbing, orange inflation vest and a signal flashlight. By the early 1960s, the US Navy had progressed through a series of developmental models of the full pressure suit that would ultimately take final form in the Mark IV, Model 3, Type 1, a production suit which US Navy aircrew wore on high altitude flights during its cold weather operations.

2

Regardless of the success of the A/P22S-2 suit and its modifications in Air Force use, it remained to the US Navy's cooperative program with the B. F. Goodrich Company and pioneer suit designer Russell Colley to solve some important problems concerning mobility and full pressurization. One of the most important developments was an aneroid suit controller that maintained suit internal pressurization at precisely 0.24 bar. The Mark series of US Navy full pressure suits which followed culminated in three models of the final Mark IV suit, which went into production in 1958 as standard high altitude issue for US Navy squadrons. The Mark IV, Model 3, Type 1 suit featured various enhancements in fit and ease of donning, as well as substantially improved pressurization control. It would go on to be selected as the basic foundation for modification into NASA's early earth-orbital suit (the original Mercury prototype suits were specially reworked Mark IV suits). Included with the suit is its matching gold helmet, complete with clear and sun visors, US Navy decal, communication and oxygen hoses, external oxygen regulator, earphones and throat microphone. There is a soft pad at the top, inside the helmet, that reads: "3579 / Headpiece, Mk IV, MOD 2 / Full Pressure Suit / Type 1 / Stock No. RG8475-736-4394-LF 50 / Mfg by the B. F. Goodrich Co. / Date Mfg'd 9-61 / Contract No. N. 383-70891 A / U. S. Navy". There is a NASA meatball decal (original ?) on the back of the helmet alongside the white "Rescue" label and over where the B. F. Goodrich and USN decals would have been. Other than that, the helmet appears to be in pristine condition and even includes its original plastic carry/storage container. This is an opportunity for the astute collector to acquire one of the iconic space suits of the US space program. Estimated Value ................................................................................................................................................................................................. $7,500 - 10,000

Mercury Program Replica Mercury Space Suit. This high quality replica space suit by the "Global Effects" Co. consists of 1) the the aluminized silver cover layer complete with orange collar, neck ring, cables, pressure guage, zippers, buckles, etc, 2) the white helmet with moveable clear visor, neck ring, interior pads and simulated earphones with communications cable, 3) a pair of boots with crepe soles, snaps, buckles and adjustable laces and 5) a pair of gloves with zipper connectors, leather palms and orange interiors. This suit is a replica of Wally'Schirra's Mercury suit simulating the improved shoulder evolution of the suit. According to U.S. Spacesuits by Thomas and McMann,"...the function of the B. F. Goodrich Mercury suits was to provide reasonable unpressurized comfort...there were no hard details or unfriendly shapes to cause uncomfortable contact points. The outer layer was aluminized and provided bladder protection and structural restraint. The suits were tight fitting and custom made to minimize ressurized volume to be overcome by movement and to fit better in the cramped cabin of the Mercury capsule..." There are virtually no original Mercury spacesuits (or any other US spacesuits) in private hands as ownrship of them is claimed by NASA. A high quality replica such as this one will make an important addition to any collection. Estimated Value ............................................................................................................................................................................................... $10,000 - 15,000 554

All pages are the standard 8.5" wide as printed. A detailed, page by page, index is included based on paper length, the B/N date number system, the initials of the writer and a brief content description. High quality examples of this wire service copy are next to impossible to find today due to the fungible nature of the paper and just the ravages of time. Even in museum collections this copy has deteriorated over the years. An important addition to any Apollo collection. Estimated Value .......................................................... $1,500 - 2,500

A certificate of authenticity is included that reads: "During the Apollo flights, all air-to-ground commentary was recorded and then transcribed by a pool of typists to hand out to the news media. As they were typed, a group of engineers, including myself, would review the typed versions in case the typist did not understand the NASA acronyms and to ensure accuracy of the transcript. All commentary was typed exactly as said without any censure. Attached is an original copy of the Apollo 16 commentary when John Young became "gaseous" on the surface of the moon and was discussing this with Charles Duke without realizing that the "mike was hot" and everybody on the ground heard their comments. A censured version appeared in many newspapers the following day...". Fascinating reading that offers a first-person window onto the flight.

Apollo 17, "Scale Replica" A7LB "Lunar Extravehicular Mobility Unit" (EMU). This high quality space suit is a replica of the suit astronaut Gene Cernan wore on the lunar surface during Apollo 17. Although both the suit, helmet and the PLSS (life support system) are just shells of the complex originals, at first glance they are nearly identical to the real thing. According to the 2006 book US Spacesuits by Thomas and McMann, "...The A7LB suit was introduced as part of the Apollo 15 EMU and differed from the Apolo 14 A7L in the entry zipper orientation, addition of neck and waist joints, use of lower torque shoulder joints," etc. This suit consists of 1) the white, simulated beta cloth (washable sail cloth) suit itself with detailed annodized aluminum hose fittings, US and NASA shoulder patches and the requisit hoses, zippers and fasteners. It is entered through a horizontal zipper around the back of the waist., 2) a detachable PLSS with multiple ID/instruction labels, a US flag, a NASA patch and assorted connectors, 3) a PLSS activator on the chest with detailed replica dials, switches, etc., 4) a simulated articulated EVA helmet with sun visor only, extendable sun blast shields and white skirts around the locking ring, 5) a pair of simulated EVA gloves, with a pair of knitted gloves that were designed to be worn inside the EVA pressure gloves, and 6) a pair of replica EVA boots (5 lbs. each). This "Cernan-scale" suit was manufactured by the Guard-Lee, Inc. of Florida and was designed to be worn for up to 13 hours, although a maximum of one hour is recommended. To facilitate this, there are two battery operationed fans located in the PLSS which also has a place for frozen gel packs to be added for air conditioning. A battery is also in the PLSS that is designed to power the fans for up to 13 hours after which it can be replaced (recommended). There is also a microphone powered off the battery, which can be run into the helmet for external communication. The fan control is on the chest pack and the microphone switch is on the PLSS. There may be a small fault or two and/or a missing connector, but these should be available from the manufacturer if necessary. The suit would appear to be in excellent overall condition. The suit comes with an instructional video to show the order of the procedures necessary to both enter and leave the suit. This is definitely a two man job, but, according to the video, once in the suit, it is comfortable and movement is easy. This suit is still being sold by Guard-Lee on a custom order basis. Their asking price is $40.000/50,000. Given that this suit is "slightly" used, we don't anticipate it selling for the showroom, replacement price, but, as the old saying goes, they aren't making them as well today as they did some years ago. If you appreciate a quality product and are about Gene Cernan's size (as of 1972)., this suit should fit you, and your collection, like a glove. Estimated Value ............................................................................................................................................................................................... $25,000 - 30,000

We have only sent 6 pieces to our friends out of Australia...". While we have seen, and offered, many commercial, lucite preparations of Skylab debris, this piece, complete with its padded Australian shipping envelope, original letter and "matchbox/cotton" shipping container, kind of makes the reality of "The Sky(lab) is Falling!" seem more meaningful.

This green, gray and blue knit shirt (size M) has an embroidered logo "STS-102/5A.1 / Discovery"on the chest and "Voss" marked in blue ink inside the collar. As a rule, these shirts were worn by the astronauts on the Shuttle and onboard the International Space Station. We can't definitively say that this shirt was flown, but the odds are it was. The STS-102/5A.1 mission was added to the ISS schedule of flights in 1998 to relieve the work load and payload of the preceeding and successive shuttle missions to the ISS, the 5A flight adding the US lab, and the 6A flight adding the Canadian Space Station Remote Manipulator. By adding the 5A.1 mission to the schedule, more logistics could be carried to the station, EVA's could be accomplished at a slower safer pace, and integration of racks into the US Lab could happen over a longer period of time requiring fewer resources and personnel on the ground and in space Voss returned to Earth onboard STS-105 in August 2001. This shirt saw a lot of history being made. Estimated Value ................................................................ $250 - 350

Soyuz TM-16 / MIR-13, FLOWN "ORLAN-DMA" EVA Space Suit. This massive suit, about 5'6" tall and and about 23" wide, was worn by Alexander Poleshchuk (and other cosmonauts) during his stay on MIR-13. The suit is complete with its white canvas cover layer (two shoulder patches and a chest patch) as well as a chest control panel, hoses, a pair of gloves and boots. The Life Support backpack appears to have its full compliment of oxygen and other "innards" including cables, hoses and an access handle. The suit also includes its mounting stand to hold it upright here on earth as it needs two strong men to lift and manoever it under earth's gravity. The stand appears to be original also. This updated version of the prior ORLAN suits "D" and "DM" was designed to be used without the electrical umbilical from the MIR spacecraft. The suit used new materials for its soft parts. A waist flange was introduced to secure the lower (soft) enclosure and the possability of changing it on board the station was provided. According to Russian Spacesuits by Abramov and Skoog (2003), this version suit was used on MIR between 1988-1997 for 56 paired Evas. There were 16 test and training suits developed and only 12 flight models. These suits were generally left onboard MIR until deemed past their useful life at which point they were jetissoned into space and destroyed. In some rare cases, on a space-available basis, a cosmonaut brought the suit back with him as a souvenir. Included with this suit is the blue/white internal cooling suit worn inside the EVA suit by Poleshchuk. The cosmonaut has signed the cooling suit at the top in both English and Russian and has notated it "MIR-13" in Cyrillic. A brown wood, plywood packing case (43x29x33"; original ?) is also included. This is the first time we have had the pleasure of handling this suit, in any version, with its cover layer and its stand. We have seen pictures of the suit as exhibited in the Smithsonian Institution and in various Soviet/Russian museums. The suit has an imposing presence that will have a profoundly positive effect on any collection it joins. It would appear to be in excellent condition. Estimated Value ............................................................................................................................................................................................... $30,000 - 40,000

736

Soviet Program, 1977-1984, "ORLAN-D" EVA Space Suit. According to Russian Spacesuits by Abramov and Skoog (2003), "this semi-rigid space suit was a modification of the original ORLAN spacesuit (only 11 test/training suits developed) which was designed to support crew member EVA from the orbiting Moon space vehicle as part of the N1-L3 program. The original type ORLAN suit was never used in flight". According to Russian Spacesuits by Abramov and Skoog (2003), "... this was a reusable spacesuit. The Life Support System (LSS) was of the regenerative (closedloop) type, with exchangable expendable components. Power supply, radio communication and telemetry were via a 20m electric umbilical, which also served as a safety tether. The suit had a further safety tether with a snap hook...Only 27 test and training models and 7 flight models of the Orlan-D were made".

2

This suit is missing its outer cover layer, Life Suppport components and gloves, but has the advantage of showing the inner components that made the suit function. The backpack has an engraved "Orlan-D'on the inside lip. A green canvas draw-top carry bag for this suit is included. These will make a great addition for any collection. Estimated Value ............................................................................................................................................................................................... $10,000 - 15,000

Soviet Program, 1973, SOKOL-K ("Falcon") Rescue Suit. Suits of this type were worn by anyone who flew on the Soyuz spacecraft. It is not capable of being used outside the spacecraft in a spacewalk (EVA). It's purpose is to keep the wearer alive in the event of an accidental depressurization of the spacecraft (as happened previously on Vostok-1). This suit is complete in all respects and was used in training for an early flight to the Salyut space station. The suit consists of an inner pressure layer of rubberized kapron and an outer layer of white nylon canvas. The boots are integrated into the suit, but the gloves are removable and attach by means of blue anodized aluminium wrist couplings. The polycarbonate visor can open on hinges mounted near the ears and seals with an anodized aluminium clavicle flange when closed. The hood or soft helmet folds when the visor is raised. There is a single laced access/egress opening on the front along with various adjustment straps and connectors (oxygen, electrical, communication, etc.). A suit pressure guage is mounted on the left wrist. The suit is in excellent condition with only minimal signs of wear. ALSO included is the ShD-10 black leather/mesh communications headset designed for use with this suit. An important addition to any collection.

Soviet Program, 1973, SOKOL-K ("Falcon") Rescue Suit. A similar lot, but a later iteration of the SOKOL-K one-piece suit in that it just has one multiuse connection cable on the waist and the suit pressure guage on the left arm has been eliminated from the design. The velcro-attached cover strip down the central access/egress laced is missing and the suit is well worn. Both gloves have the initials "L. V. Y." stencilled on them and there are three different patches on the shoulders and chest. This suit would appear to be a SOKOL-KV or KM variant which in turn are predecessors of the SOKOL-K2 suit. NPP Zvezda manufactured a number of variations of the SOKOL-K suit, none of which were ever used in space. A nice addition to any suit collection. Estimated Value ................................................................................................................................................................................................... $5,000 - 7,500

Soviet Program, c1970-1980, High Altitude Insulated Water Suit (MK-3/ MZK-4) This bright orange, zippered and insulated flight suit has a rubberized interior lining with a tight rubber neck ring. The suit also has three pressure connectors on the waist, pressure regulators on both arms and the waist, integrated feet and a signaling mirror on the right wrist. The suit was worn by pilots when they were flying above water. The bright orange color of the suit was to provide increased visability for rescue.

740

ALSO included is a hard white flight helmet with visor, chin strap, oxygen mask and communications earphones. The helmet is marked, in orange "Stybdey" on the reverse. An attractive, eye opening addition to your collection. Estimated Value .......................................................... $1,000 - 1,500 46

There is an emergency chest light with battery. A triangular patch depicting a rocket rising from the earth and lettered "CCCP" is on the left shoulder. There are a pair of mitten-type gloves included with the initials "LVG" (V.G. Lazarev) marked by hand on each. A hydrosuit similar to this one was standard equipment on all Soyuz flights as part of the Emergency Survival Kit. There are seldom any initials marked on the suits though as they were only taken out of the kit for training or emergency use. The bright orange color was designed to increase visibility of the cosmonaut if the flight came down over water. Estimated Value ............................................................. $750 - 1,000

Included are the liquid storage tank (10x17") and what appears to be the hand pump (10x8") used to pump the contents of the tankout into space. The latter is a wall mounted handle with a manual pumping handle and rubber tubing. It is marked with the number "K5D-9920-340 / N. 208 / DDTD IX-83g". A fascinating conversation piece.

c1928, US Leather/Sheepskin One Piece Flying Suit. This original sheepskin-lined, leather flight suit has an original label that reads: " A. G. Spaulding & Bros. / Aviation Clothing / MFS of U.S.A.S. Design / Style 270 / Size 42 / Special". This suit was owned by the consignor's father who acquired it around 1928 when he purchased a "jazzy new plane called an Autogyro". Those planes were part helicopter and part low wing radial engine flying machines, but fell from favor when they proved very dangerous to fly. Included in the lot are both the flight suit itself, of stiff sheepskin leather construction, with belt, front zipper, leg and arm zippers, etc., as issued, as well as the original glove-leather, sheepskin cap (with matching label. "Style 950A / Size ?)). The suit shows some light leather wear at various wear points as well as having had a large flying (?) patch removed from the back. Some wool has worn off around the collar neck as would be expected. Other than the fact that the suit is in need of an oiling, it is in excellent condition. The cap is ready to go as is.

Russian Program, Autographed Color Photos. Lot of 13 color photos (10x8" and larger, most on Kodak paper) signed by Dezhurov, Krikalev, etc and picturing MIR as seen from various flights (including one of the Shuttle docked with MIR.

All three sets are in their original paper folders/covers and are quite scarce. Estimated Value ................................................................ $100 - 150

In about 30 years in the space and aviation auction business, this is the first time we have had the pleasure of offering a similar flying suit (jackets, yes) but never the complete flying suit and cap. Being from the son of the original owner, a man who learned at this father's knee how to care for things if you want them to last, has helped preserve this suit for posterity. The photos used with this lot show the consignor modelling this suit and cap with pride, as well it deserves. This suit is an important piece of aviation history. Estimated Value .......................................................... $3,500 - 5,000 47

USAF, HGU-55/P (CE) Helmet with MBU-12/P Oxygen Mask. This "Combat Edge" helmet is part of a tactical total pressure breathing system being used today in F-15 and F-16 fighter aircraft. The system improves high performance fighter pilot tolerance to high G maneuvers up to 9G's. This helmet is complete with clear visor by Gentex and with a M-87/AIC Acousticom microphone. There is a small Gentex label on the back of the helmet that reads, in part: "Parachutist Helmet / size Xlarge / 60240/G)22-4602-06 / ...". The helmet appears to be in new condition but it was designed to be used with the MBU-20/P oxygen mask rather than the MBU-12/P mask which was designed to be used with the HGU-53/P helmet. Estimated Value ................................................................ $500 - 750

We note that this type helmet was used on the one and only flight of the STARGAZER Project. Flown by Capt. Joseph Kittenger and civilian astronomer W. White, this flight demonstrated the feasability of constructing a balloon born astronomical observatory.

USAF, P-4A Jet Helmet. This classic helmet was introduced in the mid 1950s for use in fighter and bomber aircraft. It was declared obsolete in 1964. The helmets were issued with external visors that used a center locking track. Although missing its oxygen mask and most of its hardware, this helmet does have a clear USAF Insignia on the interior suspension system. This helmet shows the ravages of time but, with the exception of deterioration of the leather edging around the helmet edges, it is a great representative example of this early helmet. Estimated Value ................................................................ $500 - 750

END OF SECOND SESSION THANK YOU FOR YOUR BIDS!

Autographed "The Space Store Sluggers" Tee Shirt. "The Space Store" was a store devoted exclusively to Space Memorabilia. It was located directly across from the main enterence to the Johnson Space Center on NASA Road One in Houston, TX. Run by a dynamo renaissance woman named Dayna Steele (who has since written a GREAT motivational book "Rock to the Top" - about the rock and roll stars she knew personally as the No. 1 Rock and Roll disc jockey in Houston). The store, unfortunately, fell victim a couple of years ago to 1) the times and 2) the widening of NASA Road One and construction of a new freeway intersection. The Space Store was, and will be remembered as, the top grossing retail space store in the US. Anyway, they sponsored a baseball team composed of local residants (some of whom are/were astronauts, astronaut and NASA family members, etc. who live in close proximity to JSC and the store). This tee shirt (with NASA color logo on the front, size M), one of only about 10 created, is signed a majority of the team members, all 20+ of them. Note some of the names (not that we want to name-drop) such as Jim Voss, Kevin Kregel, Doug Hurley, Charlie Precourt (just to name a few). While not the usual sort of space memorabilia you are used to seeing in our auctions, this tee shirt is definitely a part of that history, just from a different point of view. Remember, astronauts are people too and they have lives outside of NASA and the space program. Minor faults, but in new condition. This is a lot you will not want to overlook. Estimated Value ................................................................ $150 - 250

770

Balance of Collection. A nice carton lot that includes, 1) a lot of unsigned NASA presentation boards with photos from Apollo 8, 11, 17, Shuttle flights, etc (x14), 2) a similar A-11 presentation board, but with autopen autographs of the crew at the bottom, 3) a similar Skylab presentation board with autopen autographs of all nine Skylab astronauts, 4) a similar presentation board with autopen autographs of the SL-4 crew only (x3), 5) one autographed presentation board signed by Buzz Aldrin (A-11) and two signed by Joe Kerwin (SL-2), 6) two Gordon Cooper and two Michael Collins autographs on separate pieces of paper, 7) Shuttle autographed crew photos, etc. A nice diverse lot. Estimated Value ................................................................ $150 - 250

771

Retirement Presentation Photo (20x16") picturing assembly of the International Space Station and matted to 24x20". The mat is signed by over 50 of the consignor's co-workers and friends at NASA. We note the autograph of Terry Slezak among those signing this piece. Some of you might remember that Terry was the NASA photo tech and first human to directly touch moon dust when he opened the Hasselblad camera (to develop the film) used on the moon by Neil Armstrong during Apollo 11. Unbeknownst to him, the camera had been dropped on the lunar surface and the insides were covered in moon dust. Since it was unknown at the time whether or not moon dust contained pathogens dangerous to the human race, Terry was immediately quarantined with the crew of Apollo 11 and thus preserved his 15 minutes of fame in the history of the Space Program. Attractive. Estimated Value ................................................................ $150 - 250

MISC, 1983, Rockwell Int'l "Integrated Space Plan" (45x28") Two copies of this printed chart showing the Projected US Space Program covering the years 1983-2100.

Estimated Value ................................................................ $100 - 150

An interesting lot that includes various NASA printed publications including a "Lunar Landing Site Summary" book, soft cover booklets from Apollo 12 and Apollo 13, a "Project Gemini" booklet, etc. Worth a close look.
