    GEMINI 12

    Gemini 12 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed, with Signed LOA. A 3" diameter cloth patch; the mission insignia features a Gemini capsule pointing toward the Roman numerals "XII" at top as if on the face of a clock. At left is a crescent symbolizing the moon- the ultimate goal of the Apollo program to follow this last Gemini mission. Below are the crew's surnames, "Lovell" and "Aldrin". They orbited the earth fifty-nine times from November 11-15, 1966. Lovell has signed this patch on the verso "James Lovell" with good contrast. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this embroidered patch flew on board the Gemini 12 spacecraft. Gemini 12 launched in November of 1966 was the tenth and final flight of the Gemini series which bridged the Mercury and Apollo programs. This patch is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
