Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 10 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 x 1.25, with a raised design on the face of the mission insignia and the last names of crew members Tom Stafford, John Young, and Gene Cernan. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “May 18–26, 1969” and serial numbered “254.” Fine condition, with some expected light surface wear. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Thomas Stafford, which reads, in part: “I carried the medallion enclosed with this letter on the Apollo X mission that I commanded to the Moon during May 18-26, 1969. This medallion was later transferred over to the Lunar Module we named ‘Snoopy,’ for the planned descent into low lunar orbit…During the Apollo X reentry on May 26, I and my fellow crew members…established the all-time record for the highest speed ever attained by man—24,970 miles per hour…Of course this medallion also travelled at this speed making it one of the fastest flown space artifacts.” RR Auction COA.
