    NASA Original Space Art: Three Paintings. From the estate of a long-time NASA Manned Spacecraft Center employee come these three large, striking pieces of art. (1) A 20" x 15" painting (on 30" x 22" board) of Mercury-Atlas 9 (Faith 7) in orbit around the earth. There is a clear overlay with the title: "Luminous Particles Seen At Sunrise on MA-9 Flight". Painting is in excellent condition; the outer margins of the board are waterstained; (2) A 20" x 15" painting (on 25" x 19" board) of a space capsule re-entering earth's atmosphere. There is a handwritten number, "S-201-17" at bottom. Painting is in very fine condition; the borders are stained; (3) A 14" x 11" painting (on a 20" x 17" board) of an early concept lunar module landing on the moon. Painting is in excellent condition; the board is heavily varnish-stained around the border.

    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.
