    Description

    Gemini 5 Flown Gold-Plated Silver Fliteline Medallion. 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. Excellent condition.
