DescriptionGemini 7 Flown Fliteline Gold-colored Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell. The obverse of this 25mm medal features the mission insignia that includes the Roman numeral "VII", a Gemini space capsule, and an Olympic torch, said to symbolize the marathon nature of this 1965 flight. The reverse bears the crew surnames, "GT-7", and the engraved dates of the mission. Crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell orbited the Earth 206 times during this nearly fourteen-day flight, a space endurance record that would stand for five years. There is little firm information about these Gemini-era Fliteline medallions. It is speculated that possibly one hundred were manufactured and flown on each mission. This level of rarity combined with the fact that this is from the collection of a crewmember of the flight, and that the original Fliteline case is present, make this a very desirable space-flown item. Excellent condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that the Gemini 7 gold-colored Fliteline medal that accompanies this certification letter was flown with me aboard the mission December 4-18, 1965. This medal is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
