Description


Flown screwdriver, measuring 5.75” long, used by John Young on Gemini 10. Flat-headed screwdriver is labeled by NASA, “CF55125–2 S/N1,” on one side of the blade. Accompanied by a 2009 letter of authenticity from Chris Spain, reading in part: “This letter is to certify that this screwdriver, pictured above, was part of a collection of items flown by Mission Commander John Young on Gemini 10 which I acquired at the Heritage Auction Galleries 2009 Signature Space Exploration Auction on April 1, 2009 [lot 41102].” Also included is a copy of the Gemini 10 stowage list confirming this item as “Item 39, Screw Driver, CF55125-2.” Please note: a document reproduction error obstructed the complete character “1,” so that it appears as a "." versus a "1." In very good to fine condition, consistent with mission use, with two pieces of Velcro to handle, and adhesive residue to one side on the metal shaft. Flown Gemini pieces are notoriously difficult to acquire and positively identify. This screwdriver, profiled on the well-respected research website Space Flown Artifacts, is a wonderful exception. With the incontrovertible evidence recorded on the stowage list, this piece is confirmed as the only screwdriver taken aboard Gemini 10. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
