Robbins medallion flown on Apollo 14 and presented to Schirra by CDR Alan Shepard

Wally Schirra's flown sterling silver Apollo 14 Robbins medallion, measuring approximately 1.5″ x 1″, with a raised design of the Apollo 14 mission insignia on the face—the astronaut insignia approaching the moon, leaving a comet trail from the liftoff point on Earth, with the mission and crewmen's surnames in the border. The reverse is engraved with the launch date of January 31, 1971; lunar landing date of February 5, 1971; and return date of February 9, 1971. The medal is serial numbered "298" on the edge, and stamped with the Robbins "Sterling" hallmark. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by the original case and a photocopy of a letter of provenance by Schirra, establishing "Apollo 14 #298" as part of his personal collection, noting: "The commander for each flight after Apollo 7 gave me a flown medallion in order that I might have a complete set." An ultra-desirable flight-flown association piece, presented by one Mercury 7 astronaut to another.
