Apollo 1 Fliteline gold-colored medallion, 1.25″ diameter, with the front featuring a raised design of the mission insignia and the reverse engraved with the last names of astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee, as well as “Apollo 1.” The center remains blank, which is where the flight information would have been engraved had these medallions been flown on the mission as intended. Includes the original plastic Fliteline case. In very fine condition. Originates from the collection of the original recipient, Frank G. Morgan, who was assigned as the McDonnell Aircraft Corporation Liaison Officer and Test Program Coordinator to the Space Task Group (STG) on February 16, 1959; a lifelong employee of McDonnell, Morgan worked there from 1957 to 1993.
