Description


Flown surgical scissors carried aboard the Gemini 10 mission, measuring 8.25″ long, hand-engraved on the side with the NASA part number, “P/N 20542,” and serial number, “S/N 118.” The manufacturer’s marks, “Weck” and “Weck-Stainless-U.S.A.,” are engraved on the opposing side. Includes the original spacecraft parts tag filled out at the top, “Flight time 70 hrs 48 min,” with property transfer information below. In fine condition. Although designed for many uses, the primary function of these scissors was to open food pouches. Flown Gemini items are less common than those from other programs, and this is an especially appealing piece as it accompanied two of the most famous future Apollo astronauts—Michael Collins and John Young—into space well before their famous journeys to the moon. The Leon Ford Collection.
