    Description

    Gemini 11 Flown MS64 NGC Sterling Silver Fliteline Medallion Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. This 20mm x 25mm medal was flown aboard Gemini 11 which accomplished a rendezvous immediately after reaching orbit, just as would have to be done with the upcoming Apollo missions around the moon. Only 85 minutes after the September 12, 1966, launch, Charles Conrad and Richard Gordon matched orbits with their Agena target stage and docked several times. On the obverse of the medal, stars are used to mark the major milestones of the mission. The first orbit Agena rendezvous is marked by a small star just above the earth, to the left. The Agena docking is marked by a large star on the left. The star at the top marks the record high apogee. The star on right marks Gordon's spacewalk. The reverse has the engraved dates of the flight, the mission designation, and the sterling hallmark. As a member of the astronaut office, Armstrong was allowed to purchase this medal. A Choice Uncirculated example of this uniquely-designed medal. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
