This newly released presentation presents the ultimate "must-have" for any space and aviation fan : A high quality pen set consisting of a fineliner and ballpoint pen with each! an incorporated flown artifact from the first American spaceflight - Mercury Redstone 3 - Alan Shepard : Piece of the Freedom 7 capsule parachute - flown in space during this historic first step into space ! Both pens include a flown chute fragment and come in an attractive gift box. This edition is limited strictly to 44 sets and each set comes with a numbered and signed certificate of authenticity.

Copies of the complete paperwork are available to all buyers ! We have kept the pens in a very simple and classical style with the artifact encapsulated in the top of each pen, clearly visible at all times.
