Description


Gus Grissom’s Apollo 1 Flightline gold-colored medal, 1.25″ diameter, commemorating the Apollo 1 mission. The front features a raised design of the mission insignia and the reverse is engraved with the last names of astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee as well as “Apollo 1.” In bright, unflown condition, and accompanied by its original case. Originally offered by Odyssey in 1994, the medallion is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Betty Grissom that reads in part: “I Betty Grissom, hereby state that (Virgil Grissom’s Gold Apollo 1 Medallion)…is authentic.” A personal memento directly from one of the first space casualties.
