Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on Duke's letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this Gemini 9, gold over sterling, Fliteline Medal, is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since receiving it shortly after the mission. This medallion was the one of the first ones for me to collect as I had just been selected as an Astronaut in April 1966. This medal was flown aboard the Gemini 10 capsule that launched on June 3, 1966. As a member of the Astronaut Office, I was permitted to purchase a medal from all the missions."
