Lot Details
GORDON COOPER'S MEDALLION CARRIED ON GEMINI 5.
Flown medallion, gold-plated sterling silver, 1 inch in diameter. Carried on the Gemini 5 flight by mission commander Gordon Cooper. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with motto "8 Days or Bust" and the mission dates are engraved on the reverse.

WITH GORDON COOPER'S signed provenance note, reading in part: "This Gemini 5 medallion flew in space from August 21 to 29, 1965 ... It was carried onboard in my personal preference kit and became part of history when we completed this record breaking eight day flight ... Very few gold plated medallions were made for this flight and weight restrictions for all Gemini missions limited the number of personal items that could be carried on any flight."
