    Gemini 7 Flown Fliteline Gold-Colored Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell. The obverse of this 25mm medal features the mission insignia that includes the Roman numeral "VII", a Gemini space capsule, and an Olympic torch, said to symbolize the marathon nature of the 1965 flight. The reverse bears the crew surnames, "GT-7", and the engraved dates of the mission. The original Fliteline plastic box is included. Crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell orbited the Earth 206 times during this nearly fourteen-day flight, a space endurance record that would stand for five years. There is little firm information about these Gemini-era Fliteline medallions; it is speculated that possibly one hundred were manufactured and flown on each mission. This level of rarity combined with the fact that this is from the collection of a crewmember of the flight, and that the original Fliteline case is present, make this a very desirable space-flown item. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that the gold-colored Gemini VII Fliteline medallion that accompanies this letter was flown with me aboard the mission December 4-18, 1965. This medal is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
