Description

Flown Gemini 11 Fliteline medallion from the personal collection of future moonwalker Charles Conrad

Charles Conrad’s flown Gemini 11 Fliteline silver medallion, .75″ x 1″, with the front featuring a raised design of the mission insignia and the reverse engraved with the mission date, "Gemini XI, Sept. 12-15, 1966." Condition is mint state, with slight tarnishing to reverse.

Accompanied by a handwritten letter of provenance signed by Conrad: “This sterling silver medallion flew aboard the Gemini XI spacecraft during September 12-15, 1966. The mission accomplished a rendezvous in less than one orbit of the Earth and set a world altitude record of 850 miles. It is from my personal collection.” This silver medallion was flown into low earth orbit with Command Pilot Conrad on his second space flight—he flew with Gordon Cooper on Gemini 5 roughly one year earlier.
