No collection even comes close to this. It's remarkable.
Hi fellow collector
Do you remember why you became a collector?
The very first rare object you had as a child?
That magical feeling of owning a real treasure stays with you.
And today, after all these years, you still have that passion. Collecting is in your blood. It's who you are.
Now you have a lifetime of knowledge. Your ambitions have grown. And so has your budget.
But you're still searching for that truly special piece.
The piece that lets you recapture that childhood sense of wonder.
Something so rare and remarkable you can barely believe you own it...
What would you give to have that feeling again?
The Spirit of St Louis - history's most famous airplane.
In the entrance hall of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum hangs history's most famous airplane.
An airplane that represents the peak of bravery, endurance and engineering.
A symbol of that perfect idea. Anything is possible.
The Spirit of St Louis.
For over 90 years, millions of awestruck visitors have stared up at that plane.
Wishing they could reach up and touch it. To feel that magical connection. Even for a moment.
Just as they did in 1927, when it captured the imagination of the world. Flown through the skies by one of history's greatest aviators, Charles Lindbergh.
This is your chance to do what millions have only dreamed of.
It's the rare treasure that gives you back your sense of wonder.
This is the Spirit of St Louis Collection.
This is the only-known collection of original flown parts from the Spirit of St Louis in private hands.
You won't find another collection like this anywhere in the world.
The term "rare" doesn't even begin to cover it.
Because these are the only known original Spirit of St Louis aircraft parts in private hands.
They were all flown during Lindbergh's record-breaking trans-Atlantic flight from New York to Paris in 1927.
And they are guaranteed 100% genuine, with cast-iron historical provenance.
The collection is housed in a stunning custom-made oak presentation case.
And I promise you will get goosebumps every single time you open it.
The provenance of this collection is untouchable. It's a remarkable piece of aviation history.
This incredible collection features:
- Three heavily worn bungee cord ropes used as shock absorbers on the plane's landing gear
- A rocker arm from the Spirit’s Wright J5-C "Whirlwind" engine
- And two spark plugs that kept that engine firing over the Atlantic
Every one of these six original parts played a vital role in the Spirit of St Louis' historic 3,600-mile flight.
They were present from take-off at Roosevelt Airfield in New York to its landing at the Aéroport Le Bourget in Paris, 33 hours later.
And they were carefully removed in July 1927 before Lindbergh set off on his year-long flying tour of the U.S.
Each of these well-worn aircraft components played a vital role in Lindbergh's trans-Atlantic flight.
The repairs were carried out by Kenneth Lane, an engineer from the Wright Aeronautical Company.
He replaced several worn components on July 4, 1927 during Lindbergh's layover in Teterboro, New Jersey.
Lane later donated a handful of items to museums, including the Charles A. Lindbergh Historic Site in Minnesota and the Smithsonian.
But these six parts remained in his private collection for decades, as momentoes from his work on the world's most famous airplane.
As a collector, you couldn't hope for better provenance.
And that also applies to the other Spirit of St Louis relic in the collection.
This one personally signed by Charles Lindbergh himself.
Charles Lindbergh carried the hopes and dreams of the world across the Atlantic.
When Charles Lindbergh took off from New York on May 20, 1927, he was a young airmail pilot with an impossible dream.
When he landed in Paris 33 hours later he was the most famous man in the world.
“It's hard to describe the impact Lindbergh had on people,” said fellow pioneering pilot Elinor Smith Sullivan.
“Even the first walk on the moon doesn't come close. The twenties was such an innocent time, and people were still so religious—I think they felt like this man was sent by God to do this.
”Charles Lindbergh's nonstop trans-Atlantic flight made headlines in every corner of the world.
His non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic won him the Orteig Prize of $25,000.
It made him an international hero - and an inspirational figure to millions.
But on a wider scale it transformed aviation history.
It was a leap every bit as "giant" as the one Neil Armstrong made on the Apollo 11 mission just 42 years later.
So a Charles Lindbergh signature is one of the key autographs of the 20th century.
And you won't find one better than this...
This is the largest signed section of fabric from the Spirit of St Louis I've ever seen offered for sale.
This is an original fabric section from the body of The Spirit of St Louis.
Personally signed by Charles Lindbergh and dated September 6, 1927 - just four months after his famous flight.
This piece measures 2 x 3 inches, and is one of the largest fabric sections from the plane's body ever offered for sale.
Lindbergh signs 'C. A. Lindbergh' in fountain pen. It's a remarkable historic autograph.
And the provenance of this item is exceptional, as it originates from a member of Lindbergh's own family.
It was acquired in 1927 by James E. Morrow, a relative of Anne Spencer Morrow, who married Charles Lindbergh in 1929.
James E. Morrow was part of a welcoming committee during Lindbergh's U.S publicity tour, during which he flew The Spirit of St Louis to all 48 states.
Morrow received the piece from Lindbergh during his visit to Montana, and later gave it to his daughter Vera M. Morrow.
You'll rarely find a relic of such importance with provenance this strong.
And it's that solid provenance - for every piece in this collection - that means it will stand the test of time for generations.
The Spirit of St Louis has been on display at the Smithsonian since 1928. And it remains one of the most popular attractions at the museum to this day.
And here we are today.
95 years ago to the very day that Lindbergh touched down in Paris...
History lasts forever. But it's really just a series of moments.
As a collector, that's what you're always searching for.
The objects that were right there. At the exact moment history was made.
These pieces have a special energy all of their own. They are important, valuable and utterly unique.
It takes a special kind of collector to own them.
A truly world-class collection of aviation memorabilia unlike anything else on the market.
On May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh created his own moment in history.
His legendary flight made people believe that anything was possible.
The Spirit of St Louis is the embodiment of that belief. It carried the hopes and dreams of the world across the Atlantic.
And it still inspires a sense of wonder in the millions of people who visit it.
This unique collection will do the same for you.
And what's more - you'll be the only person in the world who gets to experience that feeling in your own home. Every single day.
