Description


Extremely rare flown embroidered Gemini 9 crew patch carried on the historic earth-orbital mission, measuring 4 x 3.5, displayed in a 7 x 6.5 wooden plaque, signed and flight-certified on the reverse of the plaque in black felt tip, "Flown on Gemini IX with Gene Cernan." In fine condition. Exceptionally rare even in unflown examples, this flown crew patch retains the "Stafford-Cernan" name tab beneath the insignia showing the the Gemini spacecraft docked to the Agena, with a spacewalking astronaut tethered to the capsule. Cernan famously performed a difficult EVA during Gemini 9, which had to be cut short due to stress, fatigue, and overheating. From the estate of Gene Cernan.
