Description


Flown Gemini 9 Fliteline sterling silver medallion deriving from the personal collection of original Mercury astronaut Deke Slayton. The front of the medallion, 1 x .75, features a raised design of the mission insignia, and the reverse is engraved with the mission date, "Gemini IX, June 3-6, 1966," with the last names of the two-man crew, "Stafford" and "Cernan," raised vertically along each side. In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Stacy Grace, the step-daughter of Deke Slayton, in full: "This is to certify that this Gemini IX Sterling Silver Fliteline medallion was the personal property of my step-father Donald 'Deke' Slayton. This medallion was flown on the 3 day mission and given to Deke by the crew upon their return…There is solder residue on the reverse apparently from affixing this medallion to a tie clip."
