WALLY SCHIRRAWally Schirra: Society of Experimental Test Pilots Membership Certificate Originally from his Personal Collection, Signed. A 12" x 14" certificate dated August 22, 1963, that "...warrants that Walter M. Schirra, Jr. engaged in the profession of experimental flying is particularly qualified and has been elected and certified a member of this professional and educational association and is granted all insignia and privileges in accordance with the Constitution of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots". It is signed by the president and secretary of the society at the bottom and "Wally Schirra" near his name. Mounted to a matboard, seal is missing (easily replaced), light crinkling, and a crease at top right corner. Very good overall- would mat and frame nicely.
