    Description

    Gemini 9A Flown Silver Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Collection of Mission Pilot Gene Cernan. This 25mm x 19mm shield-shaped sterling silver medal has the mission insignia on the front which depicts the Gemini spacecraft in rendezvous with an Agena Target Vehicle and a tethered astronaut forming the figure "9", all in front of a large Roman numeral "IX". The reverse gives the surnames of the crew, Cernan and Stafford, as well as the engraved dates of the mission, "June 3-6 1966". This medal was presented to Joe Garino, NASA's Physical Conditioning Supervisor for the astronauts, shortly after the mission by Cernan. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a signed Certificate of Authenticity from Garino stating, in part: "Presented to Joe Garino by Gene Cernan. I hereby certify that the item or items described above were personally obtained by me during my years of association with the American space exploration program."
