    Description

    Gemini 11 Flown Silver Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Charles Conrad, with His Handwritten and Signed Certificate of Authenticity. This 21mm x 29mm shield-shaped sterling silver medal was flown aboard Gemini 11 with crewmembers Pete Conrad and Richard Gordon between September 12 and 15, 1966. The design includes the Roman numeral "XI," the Agena target vehicle, the orbital apogee path, and a spacewalking astronaut. On the reverse, above the sterling hallmark, is vertically engraved the mission and its dates. An opportunity to own a matched pair from the mission commander. Beautiful.

    Included with this lot is a rarely-offered handwritten and signed COA from Conrad on his notecard reading, in full: "This sterling silver medallion flew aboard the Gemini XI spacecraft during September 12-15, 1966. The mission accomplished a rendezvous in less than one orbit of the earth and set a world altitude record of 850 miles. It is from my personal collection. Charles Conrad Jr. Gemini XI CDR."
