    Description

    Gemini 9A Flown Silver Fliteline Medallion. This 25mm x 19mm sterling silver medal was flown aboard Gemini 9 with crew members Thomas Stafford and Eugene Cernan during 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. The surnames of the crew and the mission dates are engraved on the reverse. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
