    Two dollar bill flown on America's first two-man space mission

    Gemini 3 (Molly Brown) Flown Crew-Signed Two Dollar Bill, with Crew-Signed Certificate of Authenticity. A Series 1953C $2 United States Note, serial number A76270143A which flew with Gus Grissom and John Young on their landmark two-man three-orbit mission, March 23, 1965. It is signed to the left of Jefferson's portrait: "Gus Grissom/ GT-3", and to the right: "John Young/ 3-23-65", both in light red felt tip. This is one of forty-six $2 bills flown on this mission. The serial number matches a list that appears in Russell Still's excellent reference book Relics of the Space Race. A great display piece for Space or Currency collectors. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a certificate by Don Wagner and also signed by Grissom and Young. It reads as follows: "This is to certify that the currency with serial number A 76270143 A did as a matter of fact accompany 'Gus' Grissom & John Young on their three orbit flight, March 23, 1965, in the Gemini Space Craft 'Molly Brown.' Accomplishing the 'Free World's' first two-manned space venture [signed] Gus Grissom [signed] John Young".
