DescriptionGemini 11 Flown Silver Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Pilot Charles Conrad, with COA. This 20 mm x 25 mm sterling silver medal was flown aboard Gemini 11 which accomplished a rendezvous immediately after reaching orbit, just as it would have to be done with the up-coming Apollo missions around the Moon. Only 85 minutes after launch, Conrad and Gordon matched orbits with their Agena target stage and docked several times. The crew members were Pete Conrad and Richard Gordon. The flight took place between September 12-15, 1966. 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 and the mission designation. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
Included with this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from University Archives stating, in part: "Nice sterling silver commemorative medallion flown by astronaut Charles 'Pete' Conrad... It is Authentic."
