Metal ashtray with a small sculpture of NASA's Gemini engraved with astronaut Buzz Aldrin's name and Gemini missions and signed by him
Emphera signed "Buzz Aldrin". Metal ashtray, 4¼x7¾x¾. With painted metal sculpture in center of a Gemini spacecraft. Engraved at top: "Gemini IX/Back Up Pilot/Gemini XII/Pilot". Engraved at left: "From Friends at MAC". Engraved at right: "Lt. Col. Edwin E. Aldrin U.S.A.F.". Engraved at bottom: "E.V.A Total/Time Record/5 HR. 37 MI. 11 SEC.". Aldrin, born Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr. in Montclair, New Jersey in 1930, was a 1951 West Point graduate who flew 66 missions in Korea, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross. He flew F-100s in Germany before persuading the Air Force to send him to M. I. T. for a doctorate. Although he was turned down for the astronaut program in 1962, Aldrin was later aboard one Gemini mission (Gemini 12), and became a close friend of astronaut Ed White, one of the Apollo I astronauts who died in a launch pad fire. Aldrin and Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong left the patch from that ill-fated mission on the surface of the Moon. During the Apollo 11 mission, Aldrin had piloted the Lunar Excursion Module Eagle and became the second man to walk on the Moon (July 20, 1969). Lightly stained, tarnished and scratched. Paint has chipped off inside ashtray and on sculpture. Otherwise in fine condition.
