    Description

    Gemini 10 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Certified and Signed. This 3.75" x 3" patch flew with crewmembers Young and Collins aboard the Gemini 10 mission, July 18-21, 1966. The insignia is simple but symbolic. There is a large red "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 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 condition.

    Young has certified this item on the verso: "Flown/ John Young" (fair contrast).

    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.
