Lot 9120: Scarce flown Gemini 6 Fliteline gold-plated medallion, 1? diameter, with the front featuring a raised design of the mission insignia and the reverse engraved with the mission date, "November 11–15, 1966," as well as "GT–GT–6." Condition is mint state, with slight wear to rim. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from original owner Joe Garino, Jr., the former Physical Condition Supervisor for NASA, stating the medallion was given to him by Gemini 6 Command Pilot Wally Schirra. A highly desirable flown medallion made all the more uncommon by its great association between a Gemini 6 astronaut and the man responsible for making sure that all Mercury, Gemini and Apollo crew members were in peak physical condition prior to liftoff. The Leon Ford Collection.
