Lot Details
RARE GOLD-PLATED MEDALLION CARRIED ON GEMINI XI
FLIGHT DETAILS ON A MANUSCRIPT CARD BY CHARLES CONRAD
FLOWN Gemini XI medallion made of gold-plated sterling silver, 1 x ¾ inches. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with the flight and dates "Gemini XI, Sept. 12 - 15, 1966" engraved on the reverse. Affixed to (and removable from) a 4 x 6½ inch Autograph Manuscript Note by CHARLES CONRAD on his personal stationery.



CHARLES CONRAD'S signed provenance note 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."

The mission emblem symbolizes the flight objectives—rendezvous and docking with the Agena target vehicle, using the Agena to fly to a higher orbit, and spacewalks to test the ability to work in space.
