Welcome to our summer 2014 Space & Collectibles Public Auction. The auction is being held online at 11am (Central Time) on Wednesday June 4, 2014. Our philatelic sale will be held June 7-8th at the NAPEX stamp show near Washington, DC. All viewing for Space and Collectibles will take place in St. Louis only and features live, online bidding, as well as bids executed by telephone, fax and by mail. Since it is an internet auction, California bidders no longer have to pay sales tax! The sheer range and depth of material showing up for our Space and Aviation section never ceases to amaze me. For example, in the Aviation section alone, you have the opportunity to obtain highly technical original drawings and documents related to wind tunnel tests on the British ‘Supermarine Swift’ jet (Lot 15), or you may opt for the more visually stunning dual-autographed photo of Amelia Earhart and Wily Post (Lot 31). If hardware is more your thing, you can bid on an XLR-11 rocket engine from the high altitude program (Lot 44). Our military section has a rare vintage Pratt & Whitney R-4360 ‘Wasp’ engine (Lot 672). In Space, perhaps you’d like your very own Apollo Command module? As part of the Hammargren collection, we are offering an actual NASA-era full-size Apollo Command module, known as a ’mock-up boilerplate’ vessel, that was built before others flew in space by North American Aviation as a guide. Bidding for Lot 188 starts at $200,000. Makes for a great museum showpiece! Other standouts include a pair of outstanding covers that contain autographs of the complete crew of the ill-fated 1986 ‘Challenger’ launch, STS-51L (Lot 245) and an authentic Soviet-era ‘Orlan-D’ EVA spacesuit (Lot 297). If spacecraft fits your interest, how about an amazing official 57” model of a Soviet N1 rocket, the Russian equivalent of the U.S. ‘Saturn V.’ (Lot 468). Well-known artist and stamp designer Paul Calle was the only artist to have access to the Apollo 11 crew as they prepared for launch. Hand-drawn first-day covers Calle created, based on his sketches are featured as Lots 410 and 411, while a proof of one of his sketches (signed by Calle and Michael Collins) appears as Lot 388. As is usually the case, we have a varied selection of other Collectibles and historical Documents as well. Popular artists always do well, whether it’s a bold Walt Disney ink signature (Lot 488) or a rare signed Keith Haring print (Lot 496). Historical autographs include items ranging from Declaration signer John Penn (Lot 538) to a handwritten check by Gen. George A. Custer (Lot 549). A standout, however, is a personal handwritten letter by Howard Hughes (Lot 556). Finally, in our Sports section, we continue to feature material from the extremely strong collection of material donated to the Webb Schools of California. This material ranges from autographed first-day and special event covers to entire collections of sports-related stamps. We do hope you’ll have a look. As always, viewing and live bidding are available 24/7 at www.RegencySuperior.com.

Bidding Guidelines for Coins, Sports & Autographs coin CatALOGs

Estimates In addition to the catalog value, 'estimates' are listed for each lot. You will find the estimates more reflective of the current market, and what you can reasonably expect to pay for a lot. You may, of course, bid higher or lower than the estimates. You may also speak with a lot describer for a more detailed description of a particular lot. Please call at least 72 hours prior to the sale (the earlier, the better). Remember, a Public Auction is not an approval service, lots are not returnable unless misdescribed.

Limits You may limit your total purchases by simply indicating the amount on your bidding form. This way, for example, you can bid on $5,000 worth of lots, but limit your purchases to $1,000. Remember that all lots are sold in lot number order. Bids on specially desired lots over and beyond your limit may be added to your purchase if you indicate they are to be excluded from your limit.

'OR' Bids You may bid on several similar lots with the assurance that you will purchase only one of them. Simply place an 'OR' between the bids submitted on the lots involved, and we will buy the first 'OR' lot for you, and void the rest. Remember that all lots are sold in lot number order, so you may not indicate a preference for one lot over another.

After he retired from business, Wright was appointed to the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) where he served for 28 years. That Committee was the predecessor of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Wright is listed as a member of the Committee on page viii. This was Wright's personal copy and bears the appropriate handstamp to that effect. Fine with faint soiling and very mild corner bends.

D GREAT BRITAIN 1956-65 ‘SUPERMARINE SWIFT’ ORIGINAL WIND TUNNEL DATA SHEETS ..... PH $2000-3000

Black binder and dossier file containing original papers, documents, presentation copies and drawings related to British fighter jet, ‘Supermarine Swift,’ variations in use from 1948 until well into the 1970s. The Swift, largely used by the RAF was a straight-wing jet fighter that was tested extensively over the years as it evolved. Binder, entirely related to wind tunnel tests, contains approximately 35 pages of presentation copies of schematics, calibrations, some notes and more. Dossier contains essentially 40 pages – the originals (including drawings) of everything in the presentation binder, plus a few more pages. Very fascinating and very technical. Most pages dated between 1956-65. Some toning, fine overall. 16

Attractive 5"x3¾” B&W photo of U.S. Army Lockheed Y1C-12 (#A.C. 31-405) in hangar, with bold Amelia Earhart signature across bottom in brown ink. Photo taken from private photo album, which consignor believes was from an Army officer. At the time, the little Vega was the fastest plane in military inventory. Photo possibly taken in Detroit, not long after acquisition, as Army insignia and other ornamentation is not yet present. Earhart’s connection was likely because of her affinity with the Lockheed Electra. Photo has marks from corner mounts and few small emulsion spots.

1960s APOLLO COMMAND MODULE BLOCK 1 MOCK-UP .......................................................... PH $400,000-600,000 Renowned neurosurgeon and former Nevada Lt. Governor, Dr. Lonnie Hammargren, M.D., acquired what is believed to be Apollo Command Module Block I Mock-up in mid-1970s following ending of Apollo Space Program. This unique artifact from NASA space era has remained in Dr. Hammergren’s possession for nearly 40 years and has been seen by tens of thousands of visitors to his Las Vegas residence known as Hammargren Home of Nevada History. Built in early 1960s by North American Aviation, same aerospace company who built actual space capsules flown in space, and to same basic design specifications, MOCK-UP AND BOILERPLATE SPACECRAFT, were the first vehicles used in test program. These pre-production spacecraft were similar to their production counterparts in size, shape, mass and center of gravity. These were engineering test vehicles used for developing spacecraft, for structural tests, design of equipment layout, and practice and verification of assembly methods and predevelopment testing of parachute research and development, water drop tests, studies of stability characteristics, vibration tests, flight tests and other purposes leading to proper design and development of actual spacecraft and its systems. Hammargren’s mock-up is believed to be early Block I design built in early 1960s. Block I spacecraft were limited-production flight-weight spacecraft used for flight systems development and qualification. Initial missions were conducted to verify production spacecraft structural integrity, systems operation, and system compatibility. After structure and systems tests were completed, series of unmanned flight missions were conducted to confirm compatibility of spacecraft and launch vehicle and to evaluate prelaunch, mission and post mission operations. In Fall, 1963, addition of crushable structure (ribs) to absorb landing shock were added to aft equipment bay area. This was portion of capsule which first contacted the water. Crushable ribs were used to further mitigate force of impact. Hammargren’s mock-up features exposed structural ribs which are similar to actual ribs used in flight vehicles. Heat shield is missing which may indicate that it was never there and capsule was used for crew compartment structural tests or that it was removed at some point. Only about three dozen of these mock-up & boilerplate spacecraft survived and are primarily located in museums, schools and other public locations. Only few remain in private hands.

The original ORLAN suit type was never used in flight.’ The Life Support System (LSS) was of regenerative type, including exchangeable components. According to ‘Russian Spacesuits’, power supply, radio communication & telemetry were via a 20m electric umbilical, which also served as safety tether. Suit has a further safety tether with snap hook. Only 27 test and training models and 7 flight models of the Orlan-D were made. This particular spacesuit was used for display & training and its outer cover layer has been removed. This way, the Life Support inner components that made the suit functional are exposed for view. There is an engraved ‘Orlan-D’ on the inside lip of the backpack. Additionally, there is an accompanying green carrying bag for this suit. Museum quality, perfect for the finest space memorabilia collections.

Extremely detailed model of Apollo-Soyuz spacecraft as they docked in orbit was used for Rockwell International presentation display. ASTP, first joint US-Soviet space flight, and last flight of Apollo spacecraft, took place in July 1975. Its primary purpose was as symbol of policy of detente that two superpowers were pursuing at that time, and marked end of Space Race between both countries. After years of negotiations and testing, three Apollo astronauts from United States and two Soviet cosmonauts performed joint experiments while their spacecraft were docked in orbit. Fantastic model in fine condition. Also includes photo display with astronauts, cosmonauts and spacecraft images. Ex-Dr. Lonnie Hammargren collection.

1960s ORIGINAL VINTAGE MODEL OF RUSSIAN N1-L5 ROCKET; SOVIET’S ‘MOON LANDING’ SECRET ............................................................... PH $20,000-25,000

Often considered the USSR’s answer to the U.S. SATURN V, the Soviet N1 rocket (models 1L-10L) was actually planned and conceptualized before President Kennedy announced our lunar intentions. Its original-planned massive payload (50 metric tons) was intended as a launcher of military space stations and for a Mars flyby mission. Development began in 1959 under Sergei Korolev and was escalated in 1961. However, despite elaborate plans, the program was crippled after Korolev died in 1966. Despite this, development continued, but 4 launches between 1969-72 met with 4 failures. This very large official model of the N1-L5 (designed to carry Lunar Lander) was handcrafted by Energia Corporation. Composed of resin and metal, rocket model stands 57 inches from top tip to bottom of thrusters, with an additional 5" for base (62 inches total, or a shade taller than 5 feet). Rocket measures about 13½” at its widest point (grid fins), and is a 1:72 scale model. Other than a couple of trivial paint chips near grid fin bases, model is essentially in immaculate condition. As USSR plans to beat the United States to the Moon developed, models were modified so that the N1-5L model would carry the lunar payload (with an Earth departure stage and lunar landing assist stage), in addition to a single-cosmonaut lunar lander and two-cosmonaut lunar orbiter. By November 1967, a mock-up of the N1-L3 was complete and on the launch pad. The final version was slightly shorter than the Saturn V (344 feet), but had greater lift-off thrust. The first stage of this 5-stage rocket carried some 30 engines. the N1 (any model) never successfully completed a manned flight. All 4 unmanned launches (out of 12 planned) ended in destruction, each before first-stage separation. The longest flight lasted only 107 seconds. Two test launches of N1 rockets occurred in 1969, one in 1971 and the final one in 1972. The N1-5L (this model) exploded soon after takeoff July 3, 1969, destroying rocket and pad and becoming one of the largest artificial non-nuclear explosions in history. The existence of the N1 was not acknowledged by the Soviets until 1989. An amazing, attractive and RARE artifact of the Soviet half of the race to the Moon!

 1967-70 HOWARD HUGHES PERSONAL HANDWRITTEN LETTER .................................................................... PH $15,000-20,000

Autographed letter signed “Howard” on ruled yellow sheet, no place, no date, lightly creased with fold not at signature. Memo is to Howard Hughes’ attorney, Dick Gray, and references acquisition of Silver Slipper casino in Las Vegas. Silver Slipper is only property other than Desert Inn that Hughes personally purchased. Begins “Dick” and in full: “I leave it to you-whichever would be easiest, to form a corp. in a hurry and do the deal in one step, or to it in two steps as we planned. There is one advantage to the latter alternative, this entire transaction is getting a lot of publicity now. I expect every slightest detail of this purchase to be publicized till hell won’t have it. The mention of a dummy corporation-altho(sic) routine to you and me-is just another city-slicker trick-gimmick to the local residents. It is found to arouse curiosity and create suspicion. Later, we could transfer these assets to a corporation, and most likely nobody would ever know about it. I think there is a lot of merit to keeping this transaction which is so much in the publicity spotlight, as simple as humanly possible. As, to summarize, if I can borrow the money personally, then I am in favor of my taking these assets personally-as I did in the case of the D.I. Many thanks, Howard.” Also accompanied by photo of Hughes. Rare peek into Hughes’ business thinking processes that granted him so much success. Very fine condition.

D 1783 SPANISH BROADSIDE CONCERNING TAXES & DUTIES ................................................. PH $700-900

Quite possibly the finest existing ‘Titanic’ cover (most have tears or other significant faults), one of only 14 known and documented covers slated for transit on the ill-fated ship and transferred to a different vessel due to launch delay of the ‘Titanic’. All known covers were mailed in March 1912 and sent to the M.A. Winters Company in Washington, DC. This cover bears a 25c French Sower stamp (on reverse), tied by indistinct March 13 ‘Sathonay-Camp’ postmark, and clear Washington, DC, March 27 machine cancel. On front, below slightly cleaner ‘Sathonay-Camp’ postmark, is the distinctive and bold ‘TITANIC’ marking, handstamped in violet, as well as a violet boxed Winter Co (recipient) March 28 receiving mark, and registration number. Due to travel schedules, cover was likely carried aboard the ‘Batavia’. The ‘Titanic’ was originally scheduled to set sail March 20, 1912, with a stop at Cherbourg to take on mail and passengers. We know, of course, the launch was postponed until April 10, because the vessel was not quite ready. Philatelic mementos of the ‘Titanic’ are extremely rare, consisting of a few covers and cards dropped off at Cherbourg or Queenstown (now Cobh, Ireland), after the liner left Southampton, but before the failed crossing, and those few marked ‘Titanic’ were sent to Washington in March. This well documented example (#14 in census) is fresh and extremely fine. An extremely RARE and desirable exhibition piece! An analysis of all known covers may be found at: www.titaniccovers.com.

In 1943, Romanian Jews (Transnistrian Jews) were sent to concentration camps, but Third Reich was promoting it as the ‘Relocation Program.’ So Jews were collecting money in community to help ‘relocated’ families to settle. These two documents concern these money donations. This generated one of the worst depredations during WWII as both Jew and non-Jew suffered more than 200,000 deaths with many deportees dying of starvation and exposure in defacto concentration camps, thousands of others were simply massacred by Romanian troops who occupied the portion of Russian territory involved. One of the more notorious of events being week-long shootings in the Bagdanoka Shtetl leaving 30,000 dead. File holes at left, very good condition.

Great piece of WWII aircraft history. Ex-Dr. Lonnie Hammargren collection.

D 1840 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION POLL BOOK WITH ABRAHAM LINCOLN ............................. PH $4000-6000

Entire poll book for election of 1840 from ‘Dewit’ [sic] County, IL, held in ‘Wainsville’ [sic]. Ten-page folio with additional 10 blank leaves, docketed with additional page addressed to County clerk, apparently complete tally page. Prior to his election as President in 1860, Lincoln was a determined party functionary, actively campaigning for Whig Presidential candidates in every general election from 1840-56. This was his first attempt to be elected an Elector from Sangamon County, a position that always eluded him. His name appears in manuscript on each page with column for tallies. Unusual to find an intact poll book; rare relic from Abraham Lincoln’s early political days. (University Archives LOA).

Other items have much to do with the 1963 Washington Senators (the city's 2nd franchise with that name), including a team-signed ball (mgr. Mickey Vernon on sweet spot), several covers with player signatures (Jim Gentile, Ken Retzer, Marty Kutyna), a signed photo and handwritten letter by Senator's catcher Ken Retzer, and more. Second baseball and letter signed by Los Angeles Angels coach Salty Parker. A cover commemorating JFK's visit to the 1962 All-Star game, signed by Stan Musial. Three covers from Army-Navy football games, all featuring JFK caches, signed by various players on those teams (Pat Donnelly, Cammy Lewis, and Rollie Stichweh).
