Bill Pogue's reading glasses worn in space during the Skylab 4 mission, featuring gold-tone rims with a wooden accent on one temple (the other missing). The glasses are mounted beside a Beta cloth sunglasses pouch marked "Pogue," labeled as part "SEB12100034-203," and matted and framed with a plaque and signed photograph to an overall size of 16 x 25.5. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation signed by Pogue, in part: "The accompanying reading glasses are authentic and were given to me during my astronaut training with NASA. I carried the glasses in my pocket during launch of the last Skylab mission, SL-4, and wore them throughout the 85-day mission...Skylab was America's first experimental space station, designed to prove that humans could live and work in space." Also includes a handwritten letter from Pogue concerning the case, signed "Bill Pogue, Pilot Skylab 4, 16 Nov 73-8 Feb 74," in full: "These (SEB12100034-203) glass holders for sunglasses (at Okla Air & Space Museum) but the glasses are the ones I wore on Skylab—chewed up from nervous habit."
