Lot 546: Pair of gloves for an Orlan EVA spacesuit, the left glove serial numbered [Cyrillic characters approximated] "rn-7K-11b-0350219" and the right hand serial numbered "rn-8K-1-0210120," signed on the right-handed glove's Velcro-close flap over the knuckles in black felt tip by Musa Manarov and dated 1991. The gloves measure 14? long and consist of an insulated nylon canvas outer surface and inner pressure glove with pebbled orange rubber palm and smooth green fingertips. Scattered soiling and staining to the unsigned glove, otherwise overall fine condition. Given the 1991 notation, these gloves would date to the Soyuz TM-11 mission on which Manarov served as Flight Engineer.
