A great piece of commemorative American history!

This listing is for a vintage silver-plated, or perhaps rhodium-plated, NASA Mercury 7 pendant and chain. It took some research into the number 7 and the mercury sign to find information on this unique necklace, which I believe to be a commemorative piece from the 1980s or 1990s. Date of production is unknown--I have not been able to find a similar necklace to this one, online.

HISTORY:
According to the NASA website, the "Mercury Project" was the umbrella term for the first United States' man-in-space program, which ran from 1958 to 1963. The mercury sign with the number 7 in it was the Mercury Project's emblem.

CONDITION:
The silver-colored plating on the pendant is visibly uneven, with indentations/scratches (see last photo).
Cable chain is a thin and delicate 1mm in diameter, and is on the shorter side at 16-inches long. Chain closes with a spring ring closure, and will most likely fit like a slightly loose choker.
All jump rings are open, meaning they are not soldered closed.
All components appear to be silver-plated or rhodium-plated.

The clear quartz point is not for sale. I have included the point, which is just under 1-inch long, as a measuring stick.
