The famous red swimsuit of the late Charlie’s Angels actress Farrah Fawcett has been donated by his long time companion Ryan O’Neal to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, according to 6Abc.com news site.

Among the half a dozen “Farrah Fawcett” objects being donated to the Smithsonian museum were Fawcett‘s book of scripts from Charlie’s Angels first season, the original copy of the swimsuit poster, a 1977-era doll, “Farrah Fawcett‘s Glamour Center” styling kit for creating her signature hairdo, a Time Magazine cover featuring all three Charlie’s Angels and a copy of TV Guide’s “Farrah Phenomenon” issue.

The famous red swimsuit was being wore by Fawcett in her iconic 1976 poster which was said to have been photographed before Fawcett‘s debut on Charlie’s Angels in September 1976.

According to Dwight Bowers, Smithsonian curator, the poster sold millions of copies and became the best selling poster of all time.

The “Farrah Fawcett” items will be displayed in the museum’s pop culture history collection.
