Description


Color satin-finish 10 x 8 photo of the Liberty Bell 7 capsule at the bottom of the ocean, signed in black felt tip, “Off to space 7/21/61, Guenter F. Wendt Padleader,” “Claimed by the deep, Jim Lewis, Pilot, Hunt Club 1,” and “Found! 5/1/99, Curt Newport.” In fine condition. Wendt was the last person to see Grissom, Lewis was forced to release Liberty Bell 7 into the sea, and Newport was the expedition leader who found Liberty Bell 7 thirty-eight years later. An eclectic assemblage of three key players in the mission and capsule’s recovery, seldom-seen together on a single item. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
