I am offering the following items for sale:
- A very nice Gemini GT-3 flown one dollar bill on a NASA COA. The dollar bill has been hand signed by mission commander Virgil "Gus" Grissom and pilot John Young in red felt tip marker and dated 3-25-65 with the GT-3 mission number.
The bill is accompanied by its original 10.5 x 8 certificate by Don Wagner, which features a capsule and preprinted text: "This is to certify that the currency with serial number F28752054B did as a matter of fact accompany 'Gus' Grissom & John Young on their three orbit flight, March 23, 1965, in the Gemini Space Craft 'Molly Brown.' Accomplishing the 'Free World's' first two-manned space venture."
This one is very unusual as the bill was never taped to the certificate and is in mint condition with no soiling or marks of any kind that I can see. The certificate is in great condition with only light toning (this may not be toning it may be the design of the display as every one I find has the same toning) and three small indents at the top from the 3 ring binder this was stored in.
This is an exemplarity example and I am asking $5,000 Plus money transfer fees shipping and insurance.
- An Apollo 11 red numbered AS11-40-5903 photo print. This is an iconic Apollo 11 photograph and this one is in near pristine condition. This is an original Type 1 red numbered photograph printed on "A Kodak Paper"
This photograph is flat and clean! It has sharp edges and only very slight corner dings the color is clear sharp with no sun fading.
The prices on this photograph are all over the place from $5,000 to $125,000 but I think asking $10,000 plus shipping and fees is fair. This is as pristine an example as I have encountered a truly rare find.
- One of each of John Young's flown Gemini GT-10 Flightline medallions. There is one of each variety (gold and silver color) and each is accompanied by an embossed COA from John Young attesting to the authenticity of these items. Picture on request.
I am asking $5,000 each plus shipping and fees. Both of these came from John in one original box so first person to buy gets the original Flightline box (no foam in the box).
- Apollo 15 flown lunar module tie clip. Selling this Grumman tie clip from the personal collection of Grumman Chief Test Pilot Scott MacLeod.
This tie clip was flown to the moon aboard Apollo 15 and comes with a signed COA from Scott and a signed picture of him in an early pressure of space suit. I am asking $10,000 Plus shipping and fees a great Grumman keepsake from the "Man" at Grumman.

Love the "Free World's First" reference. McDonnell Aircraft Corporation used this in their Mercury program brochures as well.
