    NASA and Related Achievement Certificates and Jewelry Collection. A nice group of ten various achievement and appreciation-type awards, mostly 11" x 14", issued to Patnesky through the years, includes: Apollo 11 Mission Operations Team, Lunar Landing Team, Public Affairs Office (Apollo 17), Apollo-Soyuz, etc. A couple of these are authentically signed by Bill O'Donnell. The certificate (mounted to cardboard) for The Nelson P. Jackson Aerospace Award (1966) is signed by several officers of the National Space Club including William S. Beller, William Hines, William M Beecher, and others. The rest bear facsimile signatures. Some of these would look nice on an office or den wall. Generally very fine.

    Also included is a large 16" x 12.5" wooden case with a glass top holding a large collection of (mostly) space-related jewelry, medals, and a small Sputnik model. A large number are Soviet or Russian in origin. Some duplication, but well over one hundred items here. A great dealer lot. Generally new and unworn. From the personal collection of longtime NASA photojournalist Andrew "Pat" Patnesky.
