Another day, another batch of treasures in the mail. Three more aviation ashtrays for the collection.
The second TWA item. Well used but still a great little piece. Probably sat on a travel agent’s desk where it “subtly” reminded him or her to “SELL TWA CONECTIONS”.
Can’t get a picture that shows the delicate etching that announces that this advertises Scandinavian Airlines Systems (SAS). Quite scratched on the base, it’s still a beauty.
This one fell into my hands. I didn’t win the original auction because the reserve price hadn’t been met. The seller contacted me and let me have it for my bid price. A true historical treasure celebrating 5 years of NASA. He also sent 2 old pens reading “NASA MANNED SPACEFLIGHT CENTER”. From the golden days of space exploration. 1963 marked the last flight of the Mercury program and preparations for the first Gemini mission. I was 11 years old.
Still more to come.
