    Last four Gemini missions

    Gemini 9 - Gemini 12 Flown Fliteline Medallions on Silver Bracelet Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Paul J. Weitz, with Handwritten COA. All are professionally holed and mounted with jump rings to an attractive sterling silver bracelet. Included are the following:

    Paul Weitz was pilot of Skylab I and commander of Shuttle mission STS-6. He was selected as an astronaut in the fifth group in April 1966. As a member of the astronaut office, he had the opportunity to obtain flown medallions from these Gemini flights. Gemini 9A was the first mission accomplished after his selection, taking place in May 1966, indicating that he immediately started his personal collection of Flitelines.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten Letter of Authenticity by Weitz on his letterhead. It reads, in full: "To whom in may concern- I hereby certify the bracelet presented with this letter was made utilizing flown silver Fliteline medallions from the Gemini IX, X, XI, and XII missions. As a member of the Astronaut Office, I was able to purchase these medallions. All of these medallions have been in my personal collection of Gemini artifacts since their respective missions. Paul Weitz, Skylab I Pilot, STS-6 Commander"
