Description

CDR Scott’s “specifically requested” A12 Robbins

Flown Apollo 12 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ in diameter, with a raised design of the Apollo 12 mission insignia on the face and engraved on the reverse with the launch date of November 14, 1969, moon landing date of November 19, 1969, and return date of November 24, 1969. The sterling silver medal is serial numbered “230” and includes its original matching case. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Dave Scott, reading, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 12 silver medallion number ‘230’ included with this letter is from my personal collection and was flown aboard Apollo 12, November 14–24, 1969…Specific numbered medallions could be requested at the time of the order. After the mission, the Astronaut Office distributed the medallions accordingly. I specifically requested the Apollo 12 number ‘230’ included with this letter.” Scott requested number 230 to have a consistent collection and the number represented a Mercedes 230SL for which he had aspirations.
