    NASA Cape Canaveral Mercury Launch Complex 14 Artifacts (Three). The famous LC-14 pad from which all four manned orbital Mercury missions were launched beginning with Mercury-Atlas 6 (Friendship 7). Here are three great relics from that historical site. (1) A 3" x 0.75" red-painted fragment of the gantry. (2) A 6" x 3.875" sign "RP-1 Fill Valve". (3) The RP-1 fuel valve cap, 2.625" diameter x 1" deep with attached chain, made by Russell & Stoll Co. of New York. RP-1 stands for Rocket Propellant-1 or Refined Petroleum-1 and is a highly-refined type of kerosene used for powering rockets. How cool would it be to add these to your Space display! Well-used as expected.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
