#6250 - Tom Stafford's Gemini 6 Flown Fliteline Gold Medal Estimate: $2,000+

Scarce Gemini 6 Fliteline medallion—one of 10 flown gold-plated examples

Flown Gemini 6 Fliteline gold-plated medallion, 1″ diameter, with the front featuring a raised design of the mission insignia, the reverse engraved with the mission date, “December 15-16, 1965,” as well as “GT-GT-6,” and the rim marked “E.” Condition is mint state, with slight wear to rim. Includes the original Fliteline case. A highly desirable flown medallion given that of the few examples that traveled with Wally Schirra and Tom Stafford on the Gemini 6 mission—which achieved the first manned rendezvous with another spacecraft, its sister Gemini 7 capsule—only 10 were gold-plated, with the balance minted in silver.

From the personal collection of General Thomas P. Stafford; proceeds to benefit the Stafford Air and Space Museum (SASM) Foundation expansion fund. The hammer price, minus the auction estimate, is considered a tax deductible donation to the SASM; winning bidder should contact the SASM for a donation letter.
