DescriptionGemini 9 Flown Fliteline Gold Plated Sterling Silver Medal, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. This 25 mm medal was flown aboard Gemini 9 by Eugene Cernan and Thomas Stafford. Stafford and Cernan, originally the backup crew, flew because the original prime crew for Gemini 9, Elliott See and Charles Bassett, were both killed when their plane crashed four months before the mission. The flight took place between June 3 and 6, 1966.
The medal is in the shape of a shield and shows the Gemini spacecraft docked to the Agena. There is a spacewalking astronaut, with his tether forming the shape of a number 9. The reverse has the dates of the flight, the mission designation, and the names of the crew members. The reverse also has some discoloration due to packing residue. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
