    Flown as part of the first manned spaceflight

    Soviet Mission Vostok 1: Flown Segment of Screw in Beautifully-Illustrated Large Acrylic Display, #3/10, with Spaceflori Authentication. On April 12, 1961, Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space as he circled the globe. In this 7" x 4" x 1.25" display is a slice from a large hollow bolt that Heritage sold in 2011; it had belonged to Oleg Ivanovsky, the director of this mission. He was the man that placed Gagarin in the spacecraft and tightened the bolts to the capsule. An amazing relic from man's first venture into space. Included with this lot is a COA signed by Florian Noller. Very fine. From the collection of Lee Nunn.
