Minimum Bid: $2,500.00
Sold Price: $28,016.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Charlie Duke's flown sterling silver Apollo 16 Robbins medal, approximately 1.5″ in diameter, featuring a raised design of the mission insignia on the face. The reverse is engraved 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 "35" on the edge. Encapsulated and graded by NGC as "MS 66," with the label noting the provenance, "Ex. Charles M. Duke, Jr." Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Apollo 16 Lunar Module Pilot Charlie Duke, in part: "This Sterling Silver Medallion, numbered #35, manufactured by The Robbins Company of Attleboro, Massachusetts…was carried among the personal possessions of the crew to the Moon on the Apollo 16 flight from April 16 to 27, 1972. This medallion was one of 300 minted and was one of the 98 in our personal preference kits…on board the Command Module 'Casper.' Since returning the medallion from the Moon, it has been in my possession." This is the second scarcest medallion in the Robbins series, with just 98 that were flown. In the hierarchy of desirability, a flown Robbins medallion from a member of the Apollo 16 crew is most desirable—especially one in such beautiful condition.
