Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $250.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Interesting collection of 24 vintage original NASA photographs documenting pre- and post-flight activities for early Mercury-Redstone and Mercury-Atlas missions, each glossy finished, ranging in size from 10 x 8 to 8 x 10.5, with the majority bearing NASA caption text on reverse. This photographic collection is quite diverse, with the following a mere sample of the included images: the recovery of the Mercury-Redstone 2 and its chimpanzee occupant Ham; McDonnell technicians testing a large pressure bulkhead; a practice egress for the Liberty Bell 7 spacecraft; the erection of a Scout Missile at Pad 18; the return of the Mercury-Atlas 5 capsule; the safe return of the Sigma 7 spacecraft; and the USS Donner heading to the landing site of the Mercury-Redstone 2 capsule. In overall very good to fine condition, with slight edgewear and some missing corner tips. From the M. Edward Thomas Collection.
