    Description

    Gemini 8 Flown "Project Mercury" Plate Block, Certified and Signed by Mission Pilot Dave Scott. A plate block of four 4¢ stamps with the following written in bold black ink on the wide selvage: "Carried Aboard Gemini VIII/ During the First Docking in/ Space, March 16, 1966, 7/ Times Around/ Dave Scott". This was an important mission for Pilot Scott and Command Pilot Neil Armstrong with the planned docking. However, there were problems that caused the flight to be aborted early. Dave Scott and the other astronauts admired Ann Sakowitz and knew of her passion for stamp collecting; they were always flying items for her personal collection such as this. A rare piece. Excellent. From the collection of Robert T. Sakowitz.
