STAFFORD'S MEDALLION CARRIED ON GEMINI 6.
Flown medallion, sterling silver, 1 inch in diameter. Carried on the Gemini 6 flight by Tom Stafford. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with the flight dates engraved on the reverse.

WITH TOM STAFFORD'S signed provenance note, reading in part: "The Gemini 6 medallion attached to this card is one that I carried on the Gemini 6 flight of December 15 – 16, 1965. The flight was commanded by Wally Schirra who was selected as one of the first NASA astronauts in 1959. Wally and I made the world's first manned spacecraft rendezvous with Gemini 7 already in orbit on December 15. This was one of the most important accomplishments of the entire Gemini Program. Rendezvous would be one of the flight techniques used during Apollo to enable lunar surface exploring astronauts to return from the moon after landing."
