Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 16 Robbins medal, approximately 1.5″ in diameter, with a raised design of the Apollo 16 mission insignia on the face and engraved on the reverse with the launch date of April 16, 1972, moon landing date of April 20, 1972, and return date of April 27, 1972. The medal is serial numbered “45” on the edge. Encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder, certifying it as being from the collection of John Young and evaluating it as “MS66.” Accompanied by a 2014 letter of authenticity signed by Apollo 16 Commander John Young, in full: “I hereby certify that Apollo 16 silver Robbins Medal, serial number 45, was flown with me to the moon aboard the mission April 16-27, 1972. It has been a part of my personal collection since the mission.” This is the second scarcest flown medallion in the Robbins Apollo series, with just 98 that were flown; lower serial numbers, such as this example, are most coveted. In the hierarchy of desirability, a flown Robbins medallion from a member of the crew who flew it is most desirable—especially one in such beautiful condition.
