Jack Swigert’s Apollo 7 Flown Robbins Medal

Flown Apollo 7 Robbins medal, approximately 1″ in diameter, with a raised design on the face featuring the mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the launch date, “Oct. 11. 1968,” and serial number, “232.” Medal is encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder and desirably graded MS67, also noting that it originates from the collection of Jack Swigert. Condition is mint state. Initially designed as a special keepsake for lunar module pilot Walt Cunningham to take aboard the Apollo 7, the Robbins medallion soon popularized amongst NASA astronauts, becoming a well-known carryon for all successive missions. A desirable piece from the first manned Apollo mission—the one that started the Robbins tradition.
