    Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Fliteline Gold-Colored Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell, with Signed LOA. The obverse of this 25mm medal features the mission insignia depicting 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. Between December 4th and 18th, 1965, crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell orbited the Earth 206 times, a space endurance record that would stand for five years. Fliteline medals from the collection of a crewmember of the flight are quite desirable. Excellent condition, with a very light scratch at lower left on the reverse.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Lovell on his company letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that this Gold Fliteline Medal was flown with me on board my Gemini VII mission in December, 1965. This medal is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
