Description


Flown Series 1953C two-dollar bill, signed to the left of Jefferson's portrait in red felt tip, "Gus Grissom GT-3", and to the right, "John Young 3-23-65.” The bill is mounted to an 11 x 8.25 certificate by Don Wagner, which reads, "This is to certify that the currency with serial number A76270143A did as a matter of fact accompany 'Gus' Grissom & John Young on their three orbit flight, March 23, 1965, in the Gemini Space Craft 'Molly Brown.' Accomplishing the 'Free World's' first two-manned space venture,” with printed signatures of Young and Grissom at the conclusion. Both signatures faded, but still legible, Young’s a bit more faded, otherwise fine condition. Grissom played a joke on the pad crew who stowed the bills in their capsule by replacing the real bills with play money. Grissom led the men on for over a month before finally sending back all the real money, each signed by himself and John Young. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
