Description


Fantastic collection of ten Project Gemini launch day covers representing each manned mission, postmarked at Cape Canaveral on the date of the launch, all bearing affixed pieces of flown heatshield from the associated mission. Highlights include: Gemini 3, the first Gemini flight by John Young and Gus Grissom; Gemini 4, by Ed White and Jim McDivitt, which saw the first American spacewalk; Gemini 8, in which Neil Armstrong and Dave Scott conducted the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit; and Gemini 12, flown by Buzz Aldrin and James Lovell, which marked the successful end of the program. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Artifact Cloud, noting that "all heatshield fragments were sourced from larger parts originally encased in lucites and given to VIPs and contractors after the flight."
