Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,986.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Cooper’s NASA pilot’s license, signed “Leroy G. Cooper, Jr.,” one page, 8 x 10.25, stamp-dated August 7, 1959, with a small clipped photo of Cooper affixed to the right side above his signature, with his personal information typed underneath. License reads, “You are hereby adjudged competent to serve as pilot of aircraft owned by and/or loaned to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for flight operations in the conduct of aeronautical and space research. Air Force Regulation 55-26, dated 19 June 1959 substantiates this certificate in the case of Air Force aircraft and authorizes you to land at or clear from Air Force bases as required. This certificate becomes effective when countersigned by the Head of Flight Operations of your Field Station and will continue in effect until revoked by the Director of Aeronautical and Space Research.” Signed underneath by both the Head of Flight Operations and the Director of Aeronautical and Space Research. In fine condition. Just three months earlier, Cooper was selected as an astronaut in the Mercury program. A crucial document as this allowed Cooper to commence training for his Mercury mission. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
