    Rare and complete set of flown Gemini Fliteline medallions

    Gemini 3 - Gemini 12 Presentation Set of Flown Fliteline Medals (Ten) in Lucite, One of only Twenty-four Produced, Directly from the Family Collection of Astronaut Richard Gordon. A beautiful and historical presentation of all ten flown Fliteline medals, one from each manned flight of the Gemini program. Eight are round and 25mm in diameter; two are odd-shaped (Gemini 9 and Gemini 11). All are in matched silver coloring with five of them actually minted in sterling silver and hallmarked thusly on the reverse (Geminis 3, 4, 5, 9, and 11). They are all sealed inside a 7" x 3" x 0.75" block of Lucite and then mounted to a wooden base, 8.5" x 3" x 0.75". On this base is an engraved metal plate with the text:

    THESE COMMEMORATIVE MEDALLIONS
    WERE FLOWN ON EACH OF
    THEIR RESPECTIVE FLIGHTS


    Each medallion features the mission insignia on the obverse with engraved flight dates and other data on the reverse. A rare opportunity. The last time Heritage was privileged to offer one of these was 2009. Excellent.

    Project Gemini was the second U.S. human spaceflight program with the objective of developing the techniques necessary for more advanced space travel, such as to the moon with the later Apollo program. Gemini flights featured the first U.S. spacewalk, orbital maneuvering, and docking and rendezvous with other spacecraft. Two unmanned missions were flown before the ten two-man flights. Of the sixteen astronauts that flew Gemini missions, eleven would later fly to the moon, and six would walk on the moon.
