    Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Gold-Colored Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Jerry Carr, with LOA. The obverse of this 25mm medal features the mission insignia depicting the Roman numeral "VII", a Gemini space capsule, and an Olympic torch, said to symbolize the marathon nature of the 1965 flight. The reverse bears the crew surnames, "GT-7", and the engraved dates of the mission. Between December 4th and 18th, 1965, crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell orbited the Earth 206 times, a space endurance record that would stand for five years. Jump ring attached at top. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authentication from Carr on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "This commemorative medallion was flown aboard Gemini VII by its crew, Frank Borman and James Lovell. It was made available to me by the crew and has been the property of the Carr family collection ever since."
