Description


Unflown Apollo 15 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.5 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 15 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “Man’s Flight Through Life Is Sustained By The Power Of His Knowledge” along with the July 26, 1971, launch date, July 30, 1971, moon landing date, and August 7, 1971, return date. This medal is serial numbered “167” along the rim and is not flight flown. (Only 127 were reported to have been flown on the mission). 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 its original presentation case and a letter of provenance from noted space enthusiast and specialist Ken Havekotte. RRAuction COA.
