Lot 527

GT-3, 1965, FLOWN Fliteline Sterling Silver Medallion. With a ring mount soldiered at top. The medallion is engraved on the reverse "March 23, 1965" but has an additional engraving "From Betty & Gus" that was added when this flown medallion was given by Grissom and his wife to the consignor back around 1965. The medallion is mounted on a small woman's link bracelet that also has a small Sterling disc attached. The dime-sized disc would appear to be identical to those discs found attached to the "Dimes" flown by Gus Grussom on MR-4. This one, instead of being engraved "Flown / 1961, is engraved "HRJL / 1959" on one side and ornately engraved "A.W.H" on the other (the consignor's wife's initials). This is an important lot that features a unique example of a flown Fliteline medallion.
Estimated Value $500 - 750.
Ex. The NASA Administrator Jerry Hammack Estate collection.

Realized $235
