Gordon Cooper’s flight-flown add-on pocket, carried aboard Cooper’s Faith 7 mission in 1963. Pouch is made from the same material used to make Cooper’s spacesuit, and measures 6 x 7 x 1, with Velcro affixed to both sides, with a tab extending from the cover bearing a hand-tooled leather “Faith 7” sewn in the middle of the tab. Inside the flap there is a manuscript marking in green ink: "MSC 0691," and it is signed on the outside of the flap in blue ink, “Flown on Faith 7, Gordon Cooper.” There is also a small white sticker on the bottom of the pouch that reads: "GC-90-34.”

Cooper’s flight was the final single-astronaut mission of the Mercury series, consisting of twenty-two orbits and lasting one day and ten hours. This pocket is a unique reminder of the end of Project Mercury, as NASA set its sights on the new Gemini and Apollo missions. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
