    Description

    Gemini 12 Flown Fliteline Gold-Colored Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell. This 25mm brass medal flew aboard Gemini 12 with crewmembers James Lovell and Buzz Aldrin, November 11-15, 1966. It features the mission insignia on the obverse with the Roman numeral "XII" at the twelve o'clock position and the Gemini capsule positioned like a clock's hour hand. This was the final Gemini flight and the crescent moon at left symbolizes the ultimate goal of the space program. The surnames of the astronauts are also on the obverse with the dates of the mission engraved on the reverse. This flown medallion is in a plastic case. Excellent condition with only some light abrasive wear in the fields.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Lovell on his company letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that the gold-colored Gemini XII Fliteline medallion that accompanies this letter was flown with me aboard the mission November 11-15, 1966. This medal is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
