Description


Flown storage bag, carried on board Gordon Cooper’s Faith 7 mission in 1963. Empty bag measures 15 x 4, with a 3 x 1 tab at the top, and is stamped “No. 1,” on one side, as well as a small label affixed to one side which reads, “GC-90-32.” Bag also retains white granules inside. There is a piece of original white Velcro wrapped around the rolled bag to hold it in place. Accompanied by a handwritten letter of provenance from Gordon Cooper, which reads, “This plastic storage bag (no 1) was flown on Mercury 9 (Faith 7) on 15–16 May, 1963. Gordon Cooper.” Mercury astronaut-certified flight-flown items are highly desirable. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
