    Gemini 9A Flown Gilt over Silver Fliteline Medallion with Pin Back Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Gene Cernan, with His Signed Handwritten and Typed Letters of Certification. This 25mm x 19mm shield-shaped gold-colored sterling silver medal has the mission insignia on the front which depicts the Gemini spacecraft in rendezvous with an Agena Target Vehicle and a tethered astronaut forming the figure "9", all in front of a large Roman numeral "IX". The reverse gives the surnames of the crew, Cernan and Stafford, as well as the engraved dates of the mission, "June 3-6 1966".

Also included is a signed typed letter using essentially the same text but with added: "It has been part of my personal collection since the mission."
