From: The Space Store
Posted: Monday, September 8, 2003
Do you have space junk or space treasure in your closet? Look closely, you just might have a valuable piece of space memorabilia! Michael Orenstein and Victoria Campbell of Aurora Galleries International return to The Space Store Wednesday, September 10th through Friday September 12th, from 10 am to 6 pm each day, to evaluate and appraise space memorabilia and collectibles.
Their expertise includes flown and unflown equipment, spacesuits, helmets, autographs, training manuals and handbooks, patches and medallions, models, mockups and more. Aurora Galleries International, located in Bell Canyon (Los Angeles), California, is known and respected worldwide for their sale and auction of space and aviation memorabilia. (Note: Mr. Orenstein will travel to appraise larger collections. Please call 818-884-6468 for an appointment.)
At the Space Road Show held earlier this year at The Space Store, Aurora accepted a consignment of an autographed Apollo 11 EKG - that piece sold for $27,500 at the Aurora Galleries Space & Aviation Auction this past spring. Other consigned items that sold at that last Aurora space auction included: a flown STS-32 patch ($325), a General Dynamics Lunar Return Study Configuration Model ($4250), a flown Apollo 15 cover ($4500) and a Grumman Lunar Lander Model ($700).
The Aurora Galleries representatives will be on hand to appraise space collectibles and memorabilia at no charge and to accept consignments for anyone wishing to arrange sale of their items in the Aurora Galleries Fall 2003 Space & Aviation Memorabilia Auction to be held in Bell Canyon, California in November.
