Description

    Gemini 5 Flown Gold-Plated Silver Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Charles Conrad, with COA. This 25mm sterling silver medal features the "covered wagon" mission insignia on the obverse and the engraved mission dates on the reverse: "August 21-29, 1965" along with the sterling hallmark. It flew along with crewmembers Charles Conrad and Gordon Cooper on the mission that Conrad once jokingly referred to as "eight days in a garbage can." NASA objected to the "Eight Days or Bust" slogan seen on this medallion as they thought it belittled the true mission emphasis on scientific and medical experiments. Original case included. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from University Archives stating, in part: "Gold-plated sterling silver commemorative medallion flown by Charles 'Pete' Conrad on the historic Gemini V space mission while accompanied by Mercury pioneer Gordon Cooper... It is Authentic."
