Mercury program flown artifact acrylic - MR-3 thru MA-9

First there was Apollo, then Gemini and finally Mercury : presents the last missing flown artifact acrylic in our series containing flown artifacts from every manned Mercury flight incl. the first American spaceflight "Freedom 7" piloted by Alan Shepard and the first orbital flight "Friendship 7" piloted by John Glenn. An over 20 year search for flown artifacts from the Mercury flight has come to an end and we are proud to be the only supplier in the world for flown artifacts from every manned US spaceflight from Alan Shepard to STS-135 ! Mercury MA-6 turned out to be the toughest one since literally nothing "flown" is on the market here (other than some US dollar bills usually selling at $20.000+ in auction)

This acrylic contains six flown artifacts and is made out of the most advanced acrylic available on the market today - Plexid 55 - these are ultraclear with no discoloration over time. Unlike other privately made acrylics or lucites these are real blocks, not cheaply glued or screwed together. Each block is in the size of 7''x4'' and about 1'' thick. Perfect for any office table or even flat down in a cabinet.
