Just in case someone here is interested, here is a Gemini-era food packet for sale.

The same seller also has a segment of flown Gemini heatshield believed to be (but uncertified) from GT-5.

It does appear to be Gemini heat shield material.

It does display all of the characteristics of flown Gemini heatshield, yes. The question is whether or not it is GT-5. My thoughts are "most likely," but of course without proper provenance one cannot say for certain.

The buyer backed out of the sale of the Gemini food, so it has been relisted here. Second chances for all you food collectors.
