Lot 683: Mercury Program, c1960s, Deke Slayton's "Mercury Astronaut" Zippo Lighter (97 views)

Mercury Program, c1960s, Deke Slayton's "Mercury Astronaut" Zippo Lighter
Estimate: $350 - $500
Description: Mercury Program, c1960s, Deke Slayton's "Mercury Astronaut" Zippo Lighter. This striking lighter has "Mercury Astronaut" engraved on the cap on one side and a "Mercury Capsule" on one side of the body and a facsimile "signature" of Slayton's autograph on the other. This lighter looks as if it has been very lightly used (the wick is blackened), but the case shows only very minor surface abrasions. It would appear that this lighter is unique and was a type presented only to the Mercury Seven. Note: the engravings are difficult to see in a photograph but are clear when viewing the lighter first hand. Close examination of this lot is recommended. A rare find. Estimated Value $350 - 500.
