Description


A flown sliver-tone religious medal carried on Apollo 9, measuring 1″ in diameter, depicting “Our Lady of Loretto [sic]” with text below reading, “Protect my Flight.” The reverse depicts an airplane and is encircled by text reading, “Patroness of Aviators & Air Travelers.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Jim McDivitt, in full: “I certify that this Our Lady of Loretto [sic] medallion was flown on-board Apollo 9 on her flight in March, 1969. It is from my personal collection.” A different format than typically seen with a fine manned flight association, as Our Lady of Loreto is the patron saint of pilots.
