STAFFORD'S MEDALLION CARRIED ON GEMINI 6
MEDALLION CARRIED ON THE FIRST SPACE RENDEZVOUS
FLOWN Gemini 6 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. Affixed to and removable from a Typed Card Signed by TOM STAFFORD.

WITH TOM STAFFORD'S signed provenance card, 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."
