DescriptionGemini 8 Flown Silver-Colored Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Dave Scott, with LOA. This 25mm medal was flown aboard Gemini 8, which performed the world's first orbital docking with an Agena Target Vehicle. On board Gemini 8 were Neil Armstrong and David Scott. The obverse of the medal shows the whole spectrum of objectives that were hoped to have been accomplished on Gemini 8. The text at the bottom is comprised of the zodiacal symbol for Gemini and the Roman numeral VIII. The two stars are Castor and Pollux, which are in the constellation of Gemini, and are refracted through a prism to provide the spectrum. The reverse has a struck "First to Dock in Space" and the engraved date of the flight, March 16, 1966. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on Scott's letterhead stating, in full: "To whom it may concern: This is to certify that the attached Gemini VIII sterling silver [sic] medallion was flown aboard Gemini VIII during the first docking in space, March 16, 1966."
