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."
