    Chris Kraft's Personal Plantronics StarSet Headset as Used at Johnson Space Center, Directly from His Estate, with Photographic Provenance and Certificate of Authenticity. A 1970's era telephone operator's headset, with a single earpiece and attached adjustable acoustic tube microphone. The microphone and earpiece are connected directly to a capsule that can be worn on either ear without the necessity of a headband. Attached is a long, partially coiled black cord with a separate belt-clipped push-to-talk switch terminates in double two-conductor male phone plugs. Engraved into the plastic push-to-talk switch is: "MSC 2674". Accompanied with a vinyl carrying case labeled "C. Kraft/ JSC". This headset was used by Kraft during the infancy of the Shuttle period (and possibly earlier as well). Included are two photos of Dr. Kraft wearing the headset during early STS missions. Also included is the original instruction booklet for the StarSet. Honest wear, not tested, very good.
