Lot Details
CHARLES CONRAD'S MEDALLION FLOWN ON GEMINI 5.
FLOWN Gemini 5 medallion made of sterling silver, 1 inch in diameter. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with the mission dates of "August 21 – 29, 1965" engraved on the reverse. Affixed to (and removable from) a 5½ by 6½ inch Typed Card Signed by CHARLES CONRAD.

CHARLES CONRAD's signed provenance card reads: "This sterling silver Gemini 5 medallion flew in space from August 21 to 29, 1965. Gemini 5 was my first space mission and the second for Gordon Cooper who was mission commander. The covered wagon reflects the pioneering spirit of this early Gemini flight. This medallion became a part of history when we completed the record breaking eight day flight. Our successful completion of Gemini 5 marked the beginning of the U.S. lead in manned space exploration. The medallion is from my personal collection."

Not only a moonwalking astronaut with Apollo 12, Conrad commanded Gemini 11 in 1966 and the 28 day Skylab I flight of 1973.
