CHARLES CONRAD'S MEDALLION CARRIED ON GEMINI 11.
ONE OF THE FEW GOLD-PLATED MEDALLIONS FROM THE MISSION. FLOWN Gemini 11 medallion made of gold-plated sterling silver, 1 by ¾ inches. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with the engraving of "Gemini XI, Sept. 12 15, 1966," the mission dates. Affixed to (and removable from) a 5 by 6 1/2 inch Typed Card Signed by CHARLES CONRAD.
CHARLES CONRAD's signed provenance card reads: "This gold plated sterling silver medallion flew aboard the Gemini XI spacecraft during September 12-15, 1966. The mission accomplished a rendezvous in less than one orbit of the earth and set a world altitude record 850 miles. It is from my personal collection."
Conrad, of course, was one of just twelve men to walk on the Moon. He also has the distinction of being one of only four astronauts to fly two Gemini missions and one of only three astronauts to fly four space missions prior to Space Shuttle flights starting in 1981.
