Apollo-Soyuz Set of Six Medals

Rare set of six Apollo-Soyuz medals gifted to Jack King, a former Chief of Public Information and Public Affairs Officer for NASA. Each bronze-colored medal measures 1.5″ in diameter and features individual raised portraits of the three Apollo astronauts—Tom Stafford, Vance Brand, and Deke Slyaton—the two Soyuz cosmonauts—Alexei Leonov and Valeri Kubasov—and a stylized logo symbolizing the moment of docking, with all but the latter bearing engraved signatures of the respective astronaut or cosmonaut on the reverse. Includes the original plastic case. In fine condition. Originating from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, a portion of the proceeds for the sale of this item will be donated to the ASF.
