Description


Ed White's flown sterling silver medallion carried inside his PPK (Personal Preference Kit) during the flight of Gemini 4 and then later inside his space suit when he performed the mission's record-setting spacewalk, approximately 1″ in diameter, with a raised insignia of the mission on the front, and the reverse bearing an eagle's head and the text, "GT-4, 3-7 June, 1965." Double-matted and framed with an engraved nameplate and a commemorative postal sheet signed in black felt tip, "Edward H. White" and "James A. McDivitt," to an overall size of 15.25 x 16; mat backing has been customized to view reverse of medallion. In overall very good to fine condition, with significant scratches to mat and discoloration to coin; signed item remains fine. The Gemini 4 mission launched on June 3, 1965, and spent a total of four days in outer space, orbiting the Earth a total of 66 times. The greatest highlight of the mission was White's spacewalk, the first by an American astronaut, which lasted for approximately 20 minutes. A remarkable flown piece of aerospace history that should appeal greatly to both numismatist and space enthusiast alike.
