Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Gold-Colored Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Pilot Frank Borman, with Signed LOA. This 25mm medal features the mission insignia on the obverse depicting the Roman numeral "VII", a Gemini space capsule, and an Olympic torch, said to symbolize the marathon nature of the flight. The reverse bears the crew surnames, "GT-7", and the engraved dates of the mission. Between December 4th and 18th, 1965, crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell orbited the Earth 206 times, a space endurance record that would stand for five years. Fliteline medals from the collection of a crewmember of the flight are quite desirable. This medal was presented to Joe Garino, NASA's Physical Conditioning Supervisor for the astronauts, shortly after the mission by Borman. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a signed Certificate of Authenticity from Garino stating, in part: "Presented to Joe Garino by Frank Borman. I hereby certify that the item or items described above were personally obtained by me during my years of association with the American space exploration program." An additional handwritten note from Garino states: "Flew on Gemini VII/ Frank Borman told me./ Joe".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
