    Description

    Gemini 6-A Flown Fliteline Gold Plated Medal, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The medal was flown aboard Gemini 6-A, which performed a space rendezvous with the companion spacecraft in orbit on the afternoon of December 15. Onboard Gemini 6-A were Wally Schirra and Thomas Stafford.

    The obverse of the medal shows a hexagonal shape, reflecting the mission number; and the spacecraft trajectory also traces out the number "6". The Gemini 6 spacecraft is shown superimposed on the "twin stars" Castor and Pollux, for "Gemini". The obverse also has "Schirra" and "Stafford" with the original mission designation "GTA-6" (for Gemini-Titan-Agena). The reverse has the dates of the flight and the revised mission designation "GT-GT-6. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
