    Description

    Gemini 10 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed (Twice) and Certified. This 3.75" x 3" patch flew with crewmembers Young and Collins aboard the Gemini 10 mission, July 18-21, 1966. The insignia is simple but symbolic. There is a large red "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 "John W. Young" on the front and "FLOWN/ John W. Young" on the verso (fair contrast). Excellent condition.
