Description


Historic flown sterling silver Apollo 11 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ diameter, with a raised early design on the face of the iconic Apollo 11 mission insignia, with the eagle carrying the olive branch in its beak. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the last names of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, along with the July 16, 1969, launch date; July 20, 1969, moon landing date; and July 24, 1969, return date. This medal is serial numbered "31." Encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder, certifying it as being from the collection of Michael Collins and evaluating it as "MS67." Includes an ALS signed "Michael Collins, Apollo XI CMP," dated June 22, 2016, in full: "I hereby certify that Apollo XI silver Robbins medallion #31 was flown aboard the first lunar landing, July 1969. It has been in my personal collection since then." A superb and beautiful example of the most sought-after Robbins medallion, which also features one of the lowest serial numbers recorded. Flown medallions from the personal collection of an astronaut, with handwritten certification, are the most desirable to be found.
