Item 143 - Gemini 8: Dave Scott Catalog 429 (May 2014)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $2,935.10 (includes buyer's premium)


Extremely rare flown printed fabric American flag, 5.5 x 4, carried on board the Gemini 8 mission in 1966. Flag is attached to a color 13.5 x 11 photo of the Agena target vehicle taken from the Gemini capsule. Photo is affixed to a 19.5 x 15.5 mount, which is signed and inscribed to Dave Scott's father-in-law at the time, Gen. Issac Ott, in black felt tip, “To Ike, with all the best—the flag was there when we got this view on Gemini VIII, March 16, 1966, Dave Scott.” Framed to an overall size of 22.5 x 18.5. In very good to fine condition, with uniform fading to image, and moderate fading to Scott’s signature and inscription, which is uniformly very light, but still legible. Research suggests that most Gemini astronauts who carried flags as mementos on their missions took just a few (maybe half a dozen or less) carefully selected individual flags, rather than the larger packs or flag kits carried on the later Apollo missions. What's certain is that flags flown on Gemini 8 are exceptionally rare. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
