    Description

    Apollo 1 Silver-Colored Fliteline Medallion Directly from the Jim Rathmann Collection. Unflown. Originally presented to Kay Rathmann by Betty Grissom. This 31mm medal features the mission insignia on the obverse depicting a command/service module flying over the southeastern United States. The moon is in the distance, symbolizing the program's eventual goal. The reverse has "White Grissom Chaffee Apollo 1" struck around. In the center (where the flight dates would have been placed after the mission) is the engraved message: "Kay From Betty Grissom 1-27-67". The Grissoms and Rathmanns were close friends. Enclosed in a 14K gold bezel with a jump ring. Generally excellent condition.
