FLOWN GEMINI 6 MISSION EMBLEM.
Cloth crew mission emblem carried on the flight by Gemini 6 Pilot Thomas Stafford, approximately 4 by 4 inches, hexagonal. Featuring two Gemini spacecraft in a rendezvous-type formation with a stitched outline using background stars to form the number "6." Mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Thomas P. Stafford.
Stafford's letter begins similarly to that in the preceding lot, and continues: "The patch has been in my private collection since 1965. The star constellations of Gemini and Orion as well as the star Sirius are shown on the patch which represents the celestial background where the rendezvous occurred. We patterned our own constellation of "6" using that background."
