    Description

    Gemini 9A Flown Silver Fliteline Medallion on Sterling Silver Tie Clasp with Signed LOA from Mission Pilot Gene Cernan. This 25mm x 19mm sterling silver medal was flown aboard Gemini 9 with crew members Thomas Stafford and Gene Cernan, June 3-6, 1966. Originally selected as the backup crew, Stafford and Cernan replaced original prime crew members Elliott See and Charles Bassett after they tragically died in a plane crash less than four months earlier. The medallion is shaped like a shield, and the design features the Roman numeral "IX," the Gemini craft docked to the Agena target vehicle, and a spacewalking astronaut whose tether forms the number 9. Mounted to a silver tie clasp. Nicely toned. Excellent. From the collection of Dolores A. Riley, sister of Gene Cernan.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Gene Cernan on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that the Gemini IX sterling silver Fliteline Medal, further identified by the tie-clasp on its reverse, was flown aboard Gemini IX June 3-6, 1966. It has been a part of my personal collection since the mission."
