    Description

    Gemini Bracelet Containing Four Flown Fliteline Medallions from the personal collection of astronaut Paul J. Weitz. All are professionally holed and mounted with jump rings to an attractive sterling silver bracelet. Included are the following: Gemini 9 - Stafford & Cernan (marked sterling); Gemini 10 - Young & Collins (silver-colored); Gemini 11 - Conrad & Gordon (marked sterling); and Gemini 12 - Lovell & Aldrin (silver-colored).

    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 these flown medallions from these Gemini flights. Gemini 9A was the first mission accomplished after his selection, taking place in May 1966, meaning that he immediately started the personal collection that these come from.

    A note to condition purists: These are obviously holed; they were expertly done though and the holes are extremely tiny. It may be possible for a fine jeweler to somehow fill these holes to where they would be less visible. A similar set without the holes would be estimated at three to four times the price of these. It is indeed a rare opportunity to own medallions with the impeccable provenance of these. A handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Paul Weitz is included. From the personal collection of Paul Weitz.
