    Gemini 5 Flown Gilt over Silver Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Charles Conrad, with His Handwritten and Signed Letter of Authenticity. This 25mm gold-colored sterling silver medal was flown aboard Gemini 5, which doubled the space-flight record of the Gemini 4 mission to eight days, the length of time that it would take to fly a mission to the moon. Onboard Gemini 5 were Gordon Cooper and Charles Conrad, Jr. The obverse of the medal shows a covered wagon. It was also has "8 Days or Bust" across the wagon. The reverse has the dates of the flight engraved. A very nice example with original case included.

    Included with this lot is a rarely-offered handwritten and signed COA from Conrad on his notecard reading, in full: "This gold plated sterling silver medallion flew aboard the Gemini V spacecraft during August 21-29, 1965. The eight day mission achieved the longest manned space mission to date. It is from my personal collection. Charles Conrad Jr. Gemini V PLT."
