L. Gordon Cooper’s signed provenance card reads: “This Gemini 5 medallion flew in space from August 21 to 29, 1965. I was spacecraft commander of the mission with fellow astronaut Charles Conrad as pilot. The covered wagon reflects the pioneering spirit of this early Gemini flight. It was carried onboard in my personal preference kit and became a part of history when we completed the record breaking eight day flight. Our successful completion of Gemini 5 marked the beginning of the U.S. lead in manned space exploration.”
