Description

    Gemini 10 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. This 4" x 2.875" (overall size) patch flew with crewmembers John Young and Michael Collins aboard the earth-orbit Gemini 10 mission, July 18-21, 1966. The insignia is simple but symbolic. There is a large red Roman numeral "X" against a light blue background with two spacecraft orbiting it- a Gemini capsule and an Agena Target Vehicle. There are two stars in gold signifying either the two crewmembers, the two rendezvous, and/or the two "twin" stars in the Gemini constellation, Castor and Pollux. It is one of the few mission patches without the crew's names. Young has signed on the verso: "FLOWN/ John W. Young" with fair contrast. Excellent condition.
