Description

Flown Robbins Medallion and patch from the collection of the Apollo 9 CMP

Limited edition display featuring a flown sterling silver Apollo 9 Robbins medallion (No. 50), and a flown embroidered Apollo 9 mission patch, both of which were carried into Earth's orbit during the Apollo 9 mission and derived from the personal collection of astronaut Dave Scott. Both items are mounted and matted with plaques certifying their flown status, and a color photo of Scott performing a stand-up EVA on March 6, 1969, signed in silver ink, "Dave Scott, Apollo 9 CMP"; the entire display, numbered 2/10, is archivally framed to an overall size of 14 x 17. In overall fine condition.

Accompanied by a detailed letter of provenance signed by Scott, also numbered 2/10, in part: "I hereby certify that the Apollo 9 silver medallion number '50'…[and] the Apollo 9 patch included with this display [are] from my personal collection and [were] flown aboard Apollo 9." As a limited edition display prepared with items from Commander Dave Scott's personal collection, this is a truly remarkable piece.
