Flown 19″ Velcro watch strap, S/N 16, worn on the wrist of Cooper’s pressure suit during his Faith 7 flight, which originally held an Omega Speedmaster watch. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Cooper which states “On May 15 and 16, 1963, I piloted the ‘Faith 7’ spacecraft…the longest manned flight at the time. During the mission, I wore an Omega Speedmaster watch on the outside of my pressure suit. The watch was secured by a 19-inch black velcro watch strap. The watch strap has a label stitched at one end that is marked CF (what appears to be a 5 or an 8) 5052=3 S/N 16.” In fine condition, with some scattered light soiling. RRAuction COA.
