89. Howard Hughes personal Amelia Earhart medal presented by aviator Viola Gentry and artist Felicity Buranelli. (1941/1963) A 1.25 in. diameter medal depicting a relief profile portrait of legendary pilot Amelia Earhart with her name in relief lettering. Designed by sculptor Felicity Buranelli for the Medal of the Month Club and issued in 1941. The verso is engraved from the sculptor and pioneering female aviator Viola Gentry to Howard Hughes, "To Howard Hughes In Appreciation From Viola Gentry and Felicity Buranelli 7-24-63". Gentry set the first endurance non-refueling record for women, flying 8 hours, 6 minutes, and 37 seconds. Buranelli was connected to the word of aviation through her brother, Vincent J. Burnelli [he dropped the "a" from his name], an aeronautics engineer who made significant contributions in the areas of lifting body and flying wing. She created numerous medal designs honoring individuals who helped mankind conquer the skies. Light handling. In generally very good condition. From the personal collection of Howard Hughes. $300 - $500
