Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,320.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Series 1957 silver certificate one dollar bill, signed on the portrait side in blue ink by Alan B. Shepard, Donald K. Slayton, John H. Glenn, John ‘Shorty’ Powers, and signed in green ink by M. Scott Carpenter. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered mild to moderate creasing, uniform toning, and some scattered areas of soiling. This bill was signed on February 21, 1962, on Grand Turk Island, Bahamas, the day after Glenn’s historic flight. The recipient was a foreign contract employee on assignment during the welcoming party for the astronauts. He borrowed this dollar bill from a friend because he had “nothing else for them to sign, so I borrowed this from an American friend,” according to an accompanying newspaper clipping. The dollar bill is also accompanied by four vintage candid photos taken aboard the recovery ship USS NOA or USS Randolph, one featuring an image of Lyndon B. Johnson. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
