    "Mercury Seven" Signed Sheet of "Project Mercury" Stamps (Scott #1193). A sheet of fifty of the 4ยข U.S. commemoratives that were issued on the date of John Glenn's historic flight, February 20, 1962. The signatures are placed vertically along the wide right selvage, as follows: "Gus Grissom" (1926-1967), "Scott Carpenter", "Gordon Cooper" (1927-2004), "J H Glenn Jr.", "Wally Schirra" (1923-2007), "D K Slayton" (1924-1193), and "Alan B Shepard" (1923-1998). Please note: the Gus Grissom signature has not been definitively authenticated and the Alan Shepard signature is an early secretarial signature. Very fine condition with a tiny smear in the Cooper signature, a light crease above the Slayton signature, and a small bit of the selvage missing at upper left of the sheet.
