    Description

    Gemini 10 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the John W. Young Collection, with Letter of Certification. This 4" x 3" (overall size) patch flew with crewmembers John Young and Michael Collins aboard the earth-orbit Gemini 10 mission, July 18-21, 1966. The insignia is simple but symbolic. There is a large red Roman numeral "X" against a light blue background with two spacecraft orbiting it- a Gemini capsule and an Agena Target Vehicle. There are two stars in gold signifying either the two crewmembers, the two rendezvous, and/or the two "twin" stars in the Gemini constellation, Castor and Pollux. It is one of the few mission patches without the crew's names. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Young's widow, Susy Young. It reads, in full: "I hereby certify that the Gemini 10 'Texas Art Embroidery' Embroidered Mission patch that accompanies this letter was flown aboard the Gemini 10 mission July 18-21, 1966. It has been a part of the John W. Young collection since returning from the mission. The flag package is sealed with a holographic tamper-proof label, #1745117, to ensure authenticity, that will display a residual honeycomb design without number if removed."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
