Plane piece from ''The Spirit of St. Louis'', piloted by Charles Lindbergh in the historic first solo non-stop transatlantic flight in 1927 from New York to Paris. Piece is a Valve Spring Washer, taken from the Wright J-5 Whirlwind Radial Engine in the plane, here presented by Wright Aviation Engine Company, a short-lived aeronautics venture which owned the ''Bellanca'' plane that flew from New York to Germany two weeks after Lindbergh's flight. The ''Bellanca'' was actually Lindbergh's first choice of plane, but the Wright company wouldn't allow him to fly it without a navigator, so Lindbergh settled on the ''Spirit''. Washer is displayed in a wood plaque measuring approximately 9'' x 9.25'', with metal plaque reading in part, ''Valve Spring Washer from Wright Engine Flown by Col. Charles Lindberg [sic] From New York to Paris / May 1927''. Rusting to washer, and some wear to presentation, overall in good condition. Scarce.
