Apollo Block 1 Spacesuit Glove – Pressure Restraint Layer
Other
An Apollo Block One spacesuit glove layer. Measures 7.5" from the tip of the middle finger to the wrist edge. This is a right-hand glove with two blue metallic clips at the base of each figure. The clips hold small cords that encircle each finger. It also has a strap that goes across the back of the hand. The glove is stained from apparent use – possibly in training. Very good.

Apollo spacesuit gloves had 3 primary layers. The innermost layer is the bladder which keeps the oxygen in the suit. The next layer, present here, is the pressure restraint layer which goes over the bladder and helps shape the suit. The final, outermost layer is the external over-glove protection layer.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
