Description


Flight-flown Apollo 9 Robbins Medal, approximately 1-inch diameter, with a raised design on the face of the mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the last names of astronauts James McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart, as well as “March 3–13, 1969” and is serial numbered “323.” Normal condition.

Made by the Robbins Company of Attleboro, Massachusetts, astronauts who are in line for a flight have the option of purchasing the medallions for themselves, family, and friends as personal souvenirs. The medals are made available only to the astronauts. At the conclusion of a flight, the tokens are sent back to Robbins, where they are engraved on the reverse, polished, numbered, and returned to the astronauts. The dyes are later destroyed. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Joseph P. Kerwin, who at the time was a member of the Astronaut Flight Office and later was a science pilot onboard Skylab 2. Also accompanied by its original presentation case also numbered “323.” RRAuction COA.
