MISSION EMBLEM CARRIED ON GEMINI XII.
Flown cloth emblem, 3½ inches, mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Gordon Cooper. Displayed with a 7 by 7 inch BUZZ ALDRIN inscribed Gemini XII black and white photograph, matted and framed to 17 by 9 inches.
WITH GORDON COOPER'S signed provenance note, reading: "The crew emblem displayed with this letter was carried on the Gemini XII mission during November 11 to 15, 1966. I was back-up commander for the flight crew of James Lovell and Edwin E. 'Buzz' Aldrin. Gemini XII docked with an Agena target vehicle and Buzz made a few spacewalks. We figured out how to do spacewalks the right way by that time and Buzz performed his assigned tasks with no major problem. Gemini XII was a mighty fine ending to a flight program that made ten successful manned space flights.
Buzz signed the accompanying photograph with 'Thanks for your help!' for the support he was given to make this flight possible. The picture shows a gag gift presented to Buzz by the 'white room' launch support personnel just before he climbed into the Gemini XII spacecraft on November 11. Buzz salutes them for their efforts!"
