    John Glenn Estate Sale

    On the news today, they ran a story on the Potomac Maryland estate sale of Astronaut/Senator John Glenn

    https://wtop.com/local/2018/03/john-...nator/slide/2/

    As this is near where I live, I decided to read up on it further.

    It seems that John Glenn liked watches. Some of them are up for sale at this estate sale along with other things

    Oh, my !!!!!! Many moons agon, when I was a lot younger and a college student in Arlington, Virginia, I met John Glenn in the Smithonian Institution in Washington D.C. and spoke to him in person (like many other vistors who where strolling around in this specific section of the world's largest museum complex on that day). Too bad that all the 'old bones' of my family went away from the Baltimore/Washington area down to Florida, otherwise they could have had a look for me at the estate sale.

    How much? Shocking lack of publicity for watches from an astronaut. I couldn't see anywhere that actually gave lot numbers and details.

    I emailed them too, I wanted the 13 dial LeCoultre! I'm not quite sure what it's from since he wasn't on Apollo 13, I think he did work on the Apollo project however.

    I'm starting to lose interest in it all. Their response has been rather lacking.

    NO Omega or Bulova moon watch, interesting that the man who really did space as a pioneer didn't feel the need insn't it?
