Description


Dave Scott’s flown Apollo 17 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ in diameter, with a raised design on the face featuring the mission insignia. The reverse is encircled with raised text, “America–Challenger, Apollo XVII, The Beginning,” and is engraved with the launch date of December 6, 1972, the moon landing date of December 11, 1972, and the reentry date of December 19, 1972. The medal is serial numbered “15” on the rim, and encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder and graded MS67, noting that it originates from the collection of David R. Scott. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott stating, in part, “I hereby certify that the Apollo 17 silver medallion ‘15’ included with this letter is from my personal collection and was flown aboard Apollo 17…the eleventh and final manned mission in the United States Apollo space program…Prior to the mission, 300 medallions were struck by Robbins, however due to weight limitations, only 80 medallions were flown. Serial numbers for these 80 medallions were engraved on the rims after the mission…I specifically requested the Apollo 17 number ‘15’ included with this letter.” One of the most sought-after and difficult-to-obtain of all the Apollo flown medals, this example is further enhanced by its grade of MS67, the highest rating ever assigned.
