Lot 5033: Uncommon gold-plated Apollo 1 Flightline medallion commemorating the tragic mission, approximately 1.25? in diameter, with a raised design of the mission insignia on the face and raised text of the astronauts' surnames on the reverse. Condition is mint state, with a bit of tarnishing to edges. Accompanied by a 1999 letter of provenance from Apollo 1 Senior Pilot Ed White's son, Edward H. White, III. These were prepared for flight on Apollo 1, but of course were never reached their destination due to the tragedy. A luminous remembrance from the ill-fated first Apollo mission—direct from the senior pilot's own son.
